TL;DR

A beautiful building, an older mayor’s house, a true architectural jewel of Patras.

Gkolfinopoulou building was the house of Konstantinos Gkolfinopoulos, mayor of Patras from 1969 to 1973. He was a lawyer, a diplomat and consul of West Germany in Patras. The two-storey building, built in 1917 in Psila Alonia, is a true architectural jewel of the town. Its peculiarity is the rounded edge that ends up in a cupola covered with metallic foils. The building is also known as “Alampra”.
