Amaranteios School

The Amaranteios School of Rhodes is a tile roofed, stone build house, comprised of a ground floor and a basement. It is a fine example of the neoclassical architectural style, with a large main entrance located in the middle of the fa├žade, in a wide recess framed by four columns. The outer surfaces have several decorated elements, like the pillars framing the windows and bands, that give to the building an interesting and attractive external appearance. The building was constructed in he year 1911 by the Amarantos family and then donated to the town.

Today the building is servicing as the 8th Elementary School of Rhodes.
