Location: Ermoupolis

The Town Hall of Ermoupolis in Syros is located in Miaouli Square, the central square of the town. Its architecture combines the vibe of classical ancient Greece with the Romanticism of the West and its style appertains to neoclassical architecture, evidently influenced by German and Italian architects.

The construction of the Town Hall of Ermoupolis started in 1876 and was completed in 1898. It was designed by Ernst Ziller, a Bavarian architect who knew how to leave a clear trace of 19th-century architecture. Just keep in mind that he is the man behind the Academy of Athens and the Apollo Municipal Theatre of Patra.

The central segment is made entirely of marble.  In the interior, a marble hanging ladder leads to the first floor. The meeting room, where the local authorities gather to discuss various topics, has oil paintings depicting King George I and Queen Olga. The Town Hall also hosts the Archaeological Museum of Syros, the Court of Law, the Land Registry, the Public Archives, and some other public services.

The Town Hall of Ermoupolis is an impressive building and it is considered among the most beautiful Town Halls of Greece. It will certainly draw your attraction from the very first moment you step foot in Miaouli Square.
