Abstract: A general methodology for the earthquake resistant design and rehabilitation of damaged masonry historical structures is presented. The whole process is illustrated through a case study: The rehabilitation of Zoodohos Pigi Holy Temple in Athens; a structure that suffered extensive damage during the September 1999 Athens earthquake. The procedures followed in the design, together with a description of the actions taken for the rehabilitation of the Temple and its strengthening against future earthquake actions, are reported.
