Palace of Nestoras

Located in the Eglianos region some four kilometres south of Chora, the palace of Nestoras dates as far back as the 13th century BC with five principle buildings, compared in grandeur to Tiryns and Mycenae. Two of the central rooms have inscriptions in an old pre-alphabet linear script (Grammiki B). Evidence shows that the palace was burnt down around 1200 BC, at the same time as Tiryns and Mycenae, for reasons unknown. Of interest are the surrounding areas as well, and the domed royal tomb.
