Worth a visit. Beautiful, historical architecture. A main attraction in Ottawa, close to the market and some great views from all around. I recommend doing the free tour or at least walking up to the doors, around the building and by the eternal flame in the center. Inside is gorgeous and worth going on the tour. They have a lot of free events during special occasions like fireworks in Canada day
Your visit to Ottawa isn't complete or meaningful if you miss visiting the Parliament Hill building. There are tour guides inside to give you a thorough tour and brief you about the place. Hope my photos will enlighten you about this magnificent place. Tip: 1. Keep your eyes onto the details while keeping your ears opened too. Time is against you, so grasp as much detail as you can. 2. Summer is the best time to visit if you're visiting from a different country. 3. Tulips festive is around April, be sure to arrive a bit early.
