Susanne Pacher, Publisher of Travel and Transitions, recently visited Ottawa to explore Canada’s capital during Winterlude, Ottawa’s famous winter festival. During her visit she had an opportunity to explore one of Ottawa’s fascinating landmarks, Parliament Hill, seat of Canada’s Government. It has a historic neo-Gothic construction and consists of the Centre Block, the West Block and the East Block. The Peace Tower in the Centre block is Ottawa’s trademark and its name is a commemoration of Canada’s commitment to peace. The House of Commons and the Senate are also located here. The Parliament buildings were built between 1859 and 1866 (not including the library and the tower). Free tours are generally available every day.
