The tombs you will see in Ancient Phigaleia were built during the 3rd century BC and have temple-shaped façades. Most burial structures found in the Peloponnese are much older tholos tombs, characterised by round chambers with domed roofs like the impressive Tomb of Agamemnon at Mycenae.
     But you can find tholos tombs much nearer to The Ark. Two well-known tholos tombs sit above Psari and two even better preserved tombs are at Malthi. There is another single tomb at Mouriatadha and three smaller ones at Chalkias which were discovered as recently as 1990.
