The Tompazis Mansion is an impressive four-storied building located in the port of the Greek island Hydra. The house represents an important historical and architectural monument with it's typical form with walls of carved stone. The building consists of 3 floors with 1.100 sq.m. of total surface and a courtyard garden. The interior of the building is decorated with paintings of historical events and ships of 1821. 

The mansion - Annex of Hydra - now houses the School of Fine Arts of Athens and also has a hostel for its students. The Annex of Hydra is known as "House Tompazi" because it belonged to Admiral Emmanuel Tompazis member of an old naval family of Hydra, which served actively the Greek Revolution of 1821.
