The oldest house of Athens, a museum of itself.

The Benizelon Mansion

Built in the 16th century during Ottoman occupation, this mansion is the only surviving house of that period. It was home to the Benizelou family, and it is one of the Athenian noble mansions associated with the superior social group of Greek elders.
The mansion is a prominent secular monument for the history of the city from the 16th to the 18th century.

After a great restoration, it was conceded by the Ministry of Culture to  Holy Archdiocese of Athens, and it is now open to the public.
A series of museum interventions, visual material, video projections, audio applications and digital interactive exhibits provide information about the monument as well as the historical reality that created it.
