Parliament Hill is set of buildings in Ottawa where the Government of Canada meets and members of parliament make laws. It is called Parliament Hill because it is on a hill above the Ottawa River.
There are three main buildings: the west block, the east block and the centre block. Here is a photo of me in front of the centre block.
The roof of each building is made of copper which turns green over time.
There are many statues around Parliament Hill including many former Prime Ministers. There is also a centennial flame that was lit when Canada turned 100 years old.
This is the centennial flame. I was very careful not to get too close.
