The Peace Tower

One of my favorite place in Ottawa is Parliament Hill. I work nearby, which I thought was kind of cool when I first started: after all, it is the political center of Canada.

The Parliament itself is a beautiful building. The grounds offer great view of the Ottawa River and Quebec, right across.

But the best part is the Peace Tower, the central tower which was built to celebrate the end of World War One. It’s free to take the elevator up to the top, right below the huge clock. And the view is… amazing!

For the full size pictures, head to my Flickr page or the Pics page of this blog.
