Built about 1846 on one of the few large squares in the centre of the town, formerly called Sternon Square. An important works by the architect I. Chronis. The building combined the rooms needed for the functioning of the bank on the ground floor with the residence of its director on the two upper storeys. Externally, it has a Classical monumental character with a clear inclination towards British Palladianism. The ground floor acts as a kind of ‘base’ with rusticated masonry and archways; this appears to support the upper part, which takes the form of a temple with Ionic columns crowned by a pediment.
