Samos Town Hall



IMG_0056 (2)





The Town Hall where it had once been housed the Parliament of Samos and now, apart of the Town Hall, it is also housed the Municipal Gallery with several historic souvenirs of the recent history of the island. Among those we should mention the Constitution of the State of Samos, several portraits of governors and other important persons of the political, economic and social life of the island and several documents of the local history.

  2. It seems to be well maintained and is a handsome, stately building! Introduce us to your mayor sometime!

  3. Is the building painted yellow stucco? The building next to it is yellow too, which makes me want to know if yellow is a common colour of buildings in Samos.

  4. Such a satisfyingly designed and painted piece of architecture.

  5. This is the typical style of public building that comes to mind when I think of Greece.

  6. This looks very much like a town hall. Some architectural styles are nearly universal.

  7. Αυτό που μου αρέσει εδώ πέρα, είναι ότι δεν εγκλωβίζεσαι στα "τουριστικά", αλλά αφήνεις τον επισκέπτη να σχηματίσει σφαιρική άποψη για τον τόπο!
    Μπράβο φίλε μου :)
    Πολλά φιλιά και καλημέρες
