View looking down the beginning of the 99 steps that lead down into the cistern of the citadel of Mycenae.  Note the corbelled ceiling.  Compare a similar looking cistern from the citadel of Late Bronze Age Hazor in Israel!

Follow the steps down to the rectangular doorway.

Water from the citadel of Mycenae was diverted into this cistern via channels and terracotta pipes.
