"Vouleftiko" took its name, because here was the first Greek parliament (Vouli in Greek).
The use of over the years
From the autumn of 1825 until the spring of 1826, Vouleftiko -which had been formed in the meantime by the architect Vallianos- housed the Greek Parliament. Hence the name of Vouleftiko, known and so called until today.
The building then operated serving several purposes: it housed the Greek School, the ground floor was a prison, and here the Trial of the Chieftains of the Greek Revolution took place, of Th. Kolokotronis and D. Plapoutas.
Place of culture
Today, Vouleftiko is operated by the Ministry of Culture and serves as a conference room. Congresses, books presentations, speeches are some of the events that are held here. On the ground floor, you will see the Municipal Gallery exhibiting the work of Greek artists.
