During the second quarter of the 5th century B.C., Tirynthians enlarged and organized a settlement which existed on that site since the Neolithic period. The city was abandoned at the end of the 4th or the beginning of the 3rd century B.C. During Roman times baths and part of what could be a villa were built near the circular tower at the NE edge of the acropolis.
The ancient acropolis is situated on a hill, on the southern side of the Porto-Cheli bay.
Its northern section is submerged. Its walls (186m long and 2,50m wide), reinforced with square and sircular towers, had poros foundations, and a superstructure of bricks and tiles over conglomerate. The cult centre (deposits of the 6th and 5th centuries B.C., altar of the 4th century B.C.), houses and workshops have been revealed in the precinct of the acropolis.Wikidata ID: Q1571046
