THE ROYAL TOMBS OF VERGINA

Step back in time and discover a bounty of treasures in the first ancient capital of Macedonia, Aigai. The remains of its monumental palace, burial grounds and lavishly decorated artefacts date back to the 11th-Century BC and are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Royal Tombs of Vergina is an outstanding archaeological site and also a gateway into Greece’s rich historic past. Here, you will discover the resplendent life and death of the elite ancient Macedonians that have been unearthed.

The most important tomb belongs to King Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great. A number of the King’s most prized possessions are on display, including a battle shield and a gold embellished breastplate. Cremated bones, gold and silver artefacts, and weapons and armour are also exhibited.

Admire the impressive collection of excavated treasures including monumental tombs, temple-like facades and finely crafted personal, ceremonial and utilitarian objects made from gold, silver, bronze, iron, textile and ivory. There are also carbonised organic remains of the foods that were ritually offered.
