We are at the archaeological site of Mycenae in the prefecture of Argolida, in the northeastern Peloponnese.
The ancient city of Mycenae during 2nd millenium BC was one of the most important centers of Greek culture. Its archeological site includes the castle and the citadel, the remains of the settlement of the ancient city, the cemetery as well as the sanctuary.
At first, we are on the road towards the Mycenae archeological site and we watch shots from the walls of the citadel of the ancient city. Then, we see the Lions Gate which was the main entrance to the citadel. The Gate, which was built in the middle of the 13th century BC, was the city’s symbol of power.
The filmmaker gives us a panoramic shot of the archeological site, from the citadel. Behind the fortification walls, we see the parking lot. Shots from his group of friends follow as they wander in the citadel, a woman in a green dress goes down the dirt road between the walls.
The camera shows us from above the royal tombs of the 16th century BC, while in the background a bus departs from the parking lot towards Mykines. The camera follows the course of the bus in the dry plain of Mycenae.
Lastly, we see the group passing through the Lions Gate, as the visit to the archeological site of Mycenae comes to an end.
