Abstract: We shall review different approaches to the entropy of self-gravitating systems inGeneral Relativity. Then we shall discuss in detail the macroscopic approach based on a la `Clausius point of view. Recent developments will be reviewed discussing the aims as well asthe assumptions which the framework is based on.
Keywords: Entropy; Self-Gravitating Systems; Black-Holes.
