Greece: Virgina – Royal Tombs of Aigai

Aigai was the first capital of the ancient Macedonia before Alexander the Great moved it to Pella after his father Phillip II was assassinated. In 1976, the tombs of the royal family were discovered here intact, full of treasures and large amounts of golden artifacts. The tombs are completely underground made from clay and adorned with elaborate frescos, while a museum is set up nearby showcasing them as well as the lit artifacts in dark rooms. Photography is strictly forbidden and I got yelled at for trying (so some pics are from postcards I had to buy or public domain).
