The Town Hall of Ermoupolis on Miaouli square is one of the largest and most impressive Town Halls in all of Greece.
That Τown Ηall was built in 1876 under the supervision of Ernst Ziller with a cost estimate of about 300, 000 drachmas. A very large amount for the time!
This is a very unique building with a three-storey facade on the side of the square and two-storey facade on the back side of the building which bears striking details, two wings with five vertical window shafts left and right, overhangs, towers and more generally a typical architecture inspired by 3 different architectural styles. The Tuscan style featured on the 1st floor with the imposing staircase of 15.5 meters width, the Ionic style found on the 2nd floor and the Corinthian that can be observed in the towers.
The Town Hall also features a marble pediment dedicated to D. Bafiadakis. Other noteworthy elements of the Town Hall are the hanging ladder at the entrance, the bust of D. Bafiadakis, the boardroom and the portraits of former mayors. The Town Hall now houses the courts, the land registry, the archaeological museum and various other public bodies and municipal services.
