Academy Of Athens
Athens

The main building of the Academy is a neoclassical building and part of the so-called "Neoclassical Trilogy" of the city of Athens.

The building consists of a central part with two wings, and displays characteristics of the Ionian rhythm.
Its central part is designed along the lines of an amphiprostyle temple.
On either side of the building's facade there are two statues: On the right that of Apollo the guitar-player (3.71 m. high), and on the left that of Athina the defender (4.11 m. high).
In the forecourt to the entrance (in the foreground of the panoramic picture), there are two more statues (2.40 m. high), both seated; on the left that of Plato and on the right that of Socrates.
It is generally acknowledged by both Greek and foreign experts that the building of the Academy of Athens constitutes one of the most exquisite neoclassical buildings worldwide.
