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.

  • By email, we came in Sunday, so there was no opening, we had to hang out, the building was beautiful, and this was the time of the Bach Women's Day, so there were a lot of women on the outside who were full of photos of the female.

  • This was a nice spot to wander around and just get the historical vibe. Was a working area so people very much going about their day jobs.  more »
  • Good to look at and located directly on the harbour. Memories of Nassau of the 80s. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Parliament square is the center of the city of Nassau, Bahamas. It's a major part of our history. Parliament buildings,magistrate courts, and cabinet offices are all located here
  • 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.
  • You can enjoy taking photos in front of Victoria Regina.
  • Center of down town
