Canada/Ontario: Ottawa – Parliament Hill

Parliament Hill is the number one attraction in Ottawa and draws about 3 million tourists every year. The buildings were all built in the Victorian gothic revival style around 1927 in the district of the city specifically designed to be the nation’s capital parliament and political administration. The complex consists of three blocks, with the center block having the iconic tower usually associated with Ottawa. Further out, the are more Victorian buildings housing the Supreme Court, Justice Building, Confederation Building, Bank of Canada, and so on. An eternal flame is burning right in the middle of the park in front of the parliament tower.
