Bermuda: Hamilton – the capital of Bermuda
Hamilton is the capital and financial center of Bermuda. That being said, it’s one if the smallest capitals on the world with only 1,100 people. It was founded in 1790 intentionally as the future capital and planned and built as such. The governor of Bermuda at the time, Henry Hamilton, named it after himself (and you thought Stalin was bad). The town has a beautiful waterfront filled with Victorian buildings along the Front Street. But the main three architectural attractions are the trio of massive and spectacular buildings – the Cathedral of Bermuda (aka Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity), the snow-white Town Hall (with a clock tower showing directions instead of numbers), and the spectacular Sessions House (aka Supreme Court) sitting on a central hill.
