Othonos Amalias Str.& Gounari, Patras city
Patras, Greece

The building is located at the Zone of the Port of Patras The official opening of the Port Infrastructures, including the Customs, was on 09/04/1971 by the Greek Military Junta and the Customs was in use until the first half of 2011 when it was transferred to the new Port infrastructures. The building of the Customs consists of the ground floor, the first and the second floor. The length of the building is 90m and the width 18.3 m. It is one of the largest buildings of the port infrastructures. The building has strict horizontal and vertical lines and it is separated in many smaller spaces in order to host several offices. For a period, except for the Custom authorities, there were also located services of the General Chemical State Laboratory of Greece and Tax services. After the big earthquake at Patras on June 2008, there were observed cracks at the wall so as the building needed immediate reconstruction in order to be safe again
