It's stunning just to sit and observe this gate! It's a gigantic stone structure that was created almost 3500 years ago! One of the most significant site of ancient world if we consider how they built it!

To see the lion gate in person is so intriguing. One only wonders, did those who installed it know lions?

If you come ot Mycenae, you have to see the Lion's gate to go into the site. It is impressive and good for pictures but continue on to the site.
