After the destructive earthquake of 1999, Queen’s Tower underwent major damages, such as grave cracks on the walls of the building. The passing of time, the changing of the temperature and the humidity in the interior of the tower affected in a negative way the wooden surfaces and the marvelous murals and ceiling paintings. It was indispensable, therefore, to form a coordinated project of interventions for the total restoration of the damages, concerning architectural and aesthetical features, caused in the tower. The operations, that begun in 2003 and finished in 2009, were held by the conservation firm "AEINAES" G.PAVLOPOULOS – M. CHATZINIKOLAOU («ΑΕΙΝΑΕΣ» Γ. ΠΑΥΛΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ - Μ. ΧΑΤΖΗΝΙΚΟΛΑΟΥ Ε.Ε. ) with total funding by the company which manages the Queen’s Tower.
The personal initiative of the owners of the Tower for the restoration and conservation of the building offered to the city of Athens a great monument of our contemporary history. When the restoration operations reached their end, the Tower was open to the public and nowadays, it is available for visit via scheduled tour guides. The restoration work will allow the monument to go on with its course through time and be an attraction for hundreds of visitors who come to admire the artistic and historical value of Queen’s Tower, as well as the assets of its beautiful, natural surroundings.
