Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada

The Halifax Citadel has long watched over the harbour and the downtown core of the capital city of Halifax. Originally built as a military fortification to protect the Empire from enemies (and the occasional pirate), today the Citadel and its distinctive Clock Tower act as a reminder of Halifax’s rich past. Visit a place and time when the sounds of a modern, bustling port city are exchanged for the crack of rifle-fire and the skirl of bagpipes.
