A former ducal residence (dating back to 1848) houses the Byzantine Museum of Athens. Its collection shows how Greek art evolved from the 4th to the 19th Century. Standing out for their beauty and craftsmanship are the works of religious art. These include a great number of icons, wall paintings, reliefs and statues. In addition to these, clothes, coins, mosaics, jewelery, manuscripts, wood carvings and many other items are on display. Copies of these exhibits can be bought at the museum shop.
