  • Founded in 1837, it is the oldest university in Greece and the Balkans. It is a solemn building, perfect in the architectural lines that refer to the classic with the Corinthian-style columns, the pediment with the representation of the gods and the short access staircase. Together with the Academy and library, he forms a trilogy of neoclassical constructions that is unparalleled. Beautiful the two statues of Apollo and Athena on columns, symbol of Greek classicism. Also notable is the palace of the propylenes, seat edits of the rectory also in the neoclassical style.
