Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, Halifax: 40 reviews and 78 photos
This is Canada's most visited national historic site. The huge Citadel is an interestingly shaped fort on top of Halifax's big central hill which is within easy walking distance from the city. Construction of this place began in 1749 with the founding of Halifax. The final version which we see today was built from 1818 to 1861. During the summer to early autumn, there are guided tours which explain the fort and its history. As for the fort, it is opened all year round and is free, with very good views of the city and its harbour. This place is a must visit when you are at Halifax, more photographs are at the travelogue section of this VT page.
