Classic tropical colors and architecture define Parliament Square, the center of the Bahamas' government. The brick-lined plaza surrounded by government meeting halls allows visitors to view the heart of culture in the Bahamas. Coral pink exterior walls and brightly colored banners highlight the buildings' colonial architecture. The parliament and senate meet in two of the buildings on the square.

  • Nice place for photos, just a block down from the Straw Market on East Bay. Police always patrol this area so it is safe during the days.  more »

  • After exiting the cruise terminal, be sure to take a quick hike of a few blocks to Parliament Square. It is a very short walk from the terminal, head from the Terminal to East Bay Street in Downtown Nassau. These three beautiful, flamingo pink buildings, still house the Bahamian Government, some 200-plus years after their original construction. In the center of Parliament Square, is a statue dedicated to Queen Victoria (erected in 1905), the British Monarch, who the Bahamians held in high esteem. The brilliant architecture, colorful adornment of national bunting, and vibrant paint choices, make this a great opportunity to learn and snap some great travel shots.
