  • There is a Museum of the Parliament, is opposite the plaza of independence, which is the place most tourist centre, so there are quite a few restaurants and souvenir shops, that Yes, if you're cruising out cheaper to buy them at the terminal, since their prices are exaggerated.

  • Beautiful colonial buildings-present architectural character of Barbados. Buildings are built in the 1870 's and mixed-style neo-Gothic and Victorian English style beautiful stained glass, glass Windows and a tower Recommend must-see

  • Real visiting card of the city and the island as a whole. Pure, culturally, it is poorly populated. You can safely walk and take pictures of the surrounding area. Very civil place. Recommend as a small city tour, if you can get off the beaches here before dark.

  • Museum entry is 5usd dollars and it takes about 45 mins to get thru it .
  • The Parliament Buildings of Barbados are located at the top of Broad Street. The Barbados Parliament is a historic building and was established in 1639. I red is the third oldest Parliament in the entire Commonwealth. It was an awesome visit. *****
