Beehive/Tholos Tomb (near Tzanata village, close to Poros village)

One of the most recent discoveries, this tomb housed Mycenaen kings in their afterlife and dates back to 1300 BC. One of the biggest beehive-type tombs reserved for Ancient Greek royalty in the region, it measures almost 7 meters in diameter, and is thought to be the grave of Odysseus himself. Gold jewelry which resembles Odysseus’ gold brooch as described in Homer’s poem was also found here.
