Parliament Hill is an area of Crown land on the southern banks of the Ottawa River in downtown Ottawa, Ontario.
Its Gothic revival suite of buildings — the parliament buildings — serves as the home of the Parliament of Canada, and contains a number of architectural elements of national symbolic importance.

Originally the site of a military base in the 18th and early 19th centuries, development of the site into a governmental precinct began in 1859, after Bytown was chosen by Queen Victoria as the capital of the Province of Canada. Following a number of extensions to the parliament and departmental buildings, and a fire in 1916 that destroyed the Centre Block, Parliament Hill took on its present form with the completion of the Peace Tower in 1927. Since 2002, an extensive $1 billion renovation and rehabilitation project has been underway throughout all of the precinct’s buildings; work is not expected to be complete until after 2020. ref: Wikipedia.

    I really would have thought this building to be a church or something. What an amazing design for a library. It is quite young compared to other object built in this style. Love this photography enabled travel experience :-)

  • Many thx Peter, I am very pleased you like it! Cheers!
