Opposite the Old City Hall, on Athina street, is Kotzia Square. It was designed in 1831 after the private area was granted to the Greek state. On the square there is an archaeological site with important findings. It includes parts from streets, like the famous Acharniki street, a cemetery, residential remains and pottery workshops. Here also is the central building of the National Bank, which was constructed in the 19th century, as well as the impressive Melas Mansion, work of Ernst Ziller, which functioned initially as a hotel. Small cafes that resemble another era are available for resting.
