Took the peace tower tour. Old elevator which was fun. There is a memorial room at its base. Can be a bit of a wait.

This tower has powerful historical significance and the tour is valuable. The views of Ottawa and Gatineau are great. Take a camera.

The architecture of the old buildings on Ottawa... just beautiful. Not as old as European, but still much better than modern... in my opinion!

As part of the Parliament Buildings this structure is both imposing and awe inspiring. Great pictures available from all around the grounds. During the day the bells are playing very nice tunes which add to the magnificence of the building.

The Peace Tower is actually part of Parliament Hill. Awesome to see the whole location. Be sure to get a guide that explains everything. The items that puzzled us the most were the strange extrusions just below the clock. The guidebook explained them. They're actually...More

Es muy interesante ver el aspecto multicultural que hay en Canadá. Vimos un representante del parlamento de origen indio y el enorme respeto de los parlamentarios al tratar temas en que discrepaban. Admirable.
