Walking around in the Parliament Hill and inside the buildings, impressed with not only the architectures but the rich history of our country. It is a must see for all Canadians.

Canada's Parliament Buildings. Beautiful stone work, now under reconstruction. Great tours. Library of Parliament is stunning. Lots of places to walk outside and around the grounds.

Went to see the light show this past summer . Second time my family and I have gone. What a great way to se a bit of Canada's history and the history of the Parliament buildings. Admission was free. I was able to take some great pictures too!

We had the most wonderful tour guide to take us around the Parliament buildings and to the clock tower. We even got to sit into a live parliament session! Would highly recommend to anyone to pop in, take the free tour, and learn about the Political system in Canada, and see the beautiful view from the top of the Clock... More

Even though I grew up in Ottawa we had never gone up to the top of the Peace Tower to the lookout. Nice view.

While I have visited the hill throughout the year, Christmas time is always a magical time to visit with all the Christmas trees and lights both inside and out.
