Midea is one of the most important Mycenaean citadel sites and it is situated between Mycenae and Nafplio. The fortified citadel occupies the top of a hill which commands the view of the fields around as well as the Argolic bay.
It seems to be fortified in the 13th century BC and was destroyed at the end of the same century, possibly by an earthquake.
The site is controlled and it closes at 3 o'clock. There is not entrance fee (in Summer 2012).
In near-by Dendron, there is a Mycenaean cemetery site.
