It is said that the luxury of the Syngros Mansion, especially the fireplaces, the crystals and the furniture that came from abroad, caused a rivalry among the wealthy residents of the area. The simple, two -storied building designed by Ernst Ziller in 1872-1873 changed a lot after the interventions of the owner Andreas Syngros during the construction, and as result it differed greatly from the initial idea. After Syngros death the mansion passed on to the Greek state in order to house the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
