The exact location of the building : here

The Gounari Building was built in 1904 at the junction of 103 Eleftherias Avenue with Bizaniou Street next to the river of Florina. It is a rectangular two-storey building with a basement and is morphologically a remarkable example of the influence of French classicism. Various reuses have taken place during the years due to its privileged position and, especially, its size (e.g. as a Metropolitan Cathedral, Guardhouse, building the Educational Association “Aristotle” etc.). The different functions over the years of the building constitute an important document of the economic, cultural and social history of the area.
