Photographer's Note

At the top of Broad Street, the magnificent Neo-Gothic style Parliament Buildings, also known as the "Public Buildings," are important landmarks in Bridgetown. The buildings were constructed of coral limestone between 1870 and 1874 to house the Barbados Parliament, the third oldest in the Commonwealth. Bejeweled with beautiful stained glass windows depicting British monarchs, the east wing is home to the Senate and House of Assembly, while the west wing, with the clock tower, houses government offices, the National Gallery, and the Parliament Museum. At the museum, you can learn about the democratic heritage of Barbados, from settlement to Independence. Museum entry includes a tour of the beautiful parliament buildings.
