Built between 1881 and 1883, the Piraeus Municipal Theatre was built here, from designs by Ioannis Lassarimos.

This rectangular, 45 metre x 35 metre structure has an imposing Corinthian entrance, with four columns and a beautiful frieze adorning the pediment. The interior, built in the Italian style with a horseshoe configuration, houses a 1,300-seat theatre. Next to the theatre hall, a two-storey foyer is used as a venue for artistic exhibitions, lectures and other cultural events.

During its long history, this impressive structure has witnessed hosted many Greek and foreign theatrical companies, performing a wide variety of dramatic and lyric repertoires.
