  • A beautiful building with a history. Beautiful architecture. The interior is great and they have tours multiple times almost everyday. Worth visiting and learning about it.
  • A beautiful building full of history, architecture and art work. Best to go in the summer and walk around the building as well. Tour guides are very knowledgeable, it's worth getting the tour. A must see for all visitors and new comers.

The architecture is pretty awesome and spending time just walking around the building and looking at detail can have you spending hours there. Did you ever wonder who is depicted in that stone work?
  • This is a beautiful building. When I was there; there was 3 couples getting there wedding photos outside.
  • Beautiful building - the only sad thing was nothing was open - we just walked around the inside of the empty building. I don't know why they can't have the parliament doors open so you can see inside the chambers...but everything was locked.
