The World Heritage site of Vergina in Macedonia, Greece contains the Macedonian royal palace as well as the royal cemetery. Tomb II has been reconstructed to make a display for the objects found in the cemetery. It was thought that Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great, was buried in the tomb but the inscribed silver plate appears to be later. Other tombs dating to the fourth century BC have been found in the vicinity.
The Macedonian palace overlooks the plain and cemetery. It contained a series of dining rooms as part of the complex.
Immediately below it was the theatre where Philip II was assassinated.
