"PARLIAMENT BUILDING:" Syntagma Square - Parliament Tip by tak_pap

Syntagma Square - Parliament, Athens: 79 reviews and 148 photos


A representative sample of the early period of Neoclassicism in Greece, the building is an abstemious work of strict geometry in its mass. The formation of its spaces forms a frame and a central rectangular body that separates the opening in between in two courtyards. Doric-style column rows stand in front of the facade and the back (eastern) side.
