Explore the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC)! A creation of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW), the SNFCC is a building complex of pioneering architecture that houses the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera.
Wander through the indoor and outdoor spaces of the SNFCC, in a guided tour that highlights how the SNFCC's design, construction and operation reflect its vision of creating a public space open to all, without discrimination.

The Stavros Niarchos Park is a welcoming open area, with its plants and character reflecting the Mediterranean landscape.
