Entrance to the underground cistern
The image shows the entrance to the tunnel leading to a large underground cistern, which receives water through underground aqueducts from a natural spring.
It belonged to the Mycenaeans, a mysterious late bronze-age civilization that rose from nowhere around 1900 BCE, flourished mostly in the Peloponnese peninsula, and then disappeared suddenly around 1100 BCE. Whatever little we know about the Mycenaean civilization is fascinating.
