The building before…

building_new   The Focas-Cosmetatos Foundation is located at 1, P. Vallianos Street, next to the Central Square of Argostoli, in the family house of the Focas-Cosmetatos brothers.

The house was rebuilt on a much reduced scale after its complete destruction in the 1953 earthquakes and the great fire that followed.

This listed building is a beautiful piece of architecture, preserving the aesthetics of the local architectural tradition, though adapted to modern needs. In fact, the building houses three functions: the Collections on the ground floor, the Archives in the basement and the Secretariat on the first floor.

The small garden at the back hosts various events and exhibitions organized every year by the Foundation.
