The National Library of Greece is part of the “Athenian Trilogy”. Designed by Theophil Hansen and built in 1888-1902. It is a neoclassical mansion of marble from Penteli with elements from the Doric order and stairs of Renaissance style. The materialization of the library was a vision and the work of Ioannis Kapodistrias. Nowadays the National Library of Greece has as an objective “this unparalleled wealth should not just remain guarded, but be a knowledge that spreads to the society".
