Exploring the ruins of Troy is like taking a journey back in history to 3,500 B.C.
The legend of Troy began with the story of Dardanos, son of Zeus and the ancestor of Troy’s royal family. Members of the royal family were considered to be sons of the gods, and their wealth grew to enormous proportions. Envy of this wealth led to the Trojan War, immortalized by Homer in the Iliad.
