Palace of Nestor

Interesting
On top of a hill covered with olive trees, the three sections of the Palace of Nestor, hero of the Trojan War, are protected by a metallic roof. This royal complex, is very clear to read, with 1m-high walls and vestiges of staircases, is one of the best preserved Mycenaean palaces, and the absence of ramparts lends it an atmosphere of peace. The discovery on the site of 1 250 terracotta tablets inscribed with linear B help decipher this ancient Greek script.
