Ontario Legislative Building

Description

You'll be greeted by statues of historical figures such as Queen Victoria, King George V, and John A Macdonald when you enter this government building. Built by prison inmates in 1792, this five-story, Richardsonian Romanesque-style structure is architecturally overpowering — iron carvings of gargoyles, grotesques, and friezes adorn the pink exterior. The building’s design varies by wing — a devastating 1909 blaze destroyed the west wing, and it was restored using white Italian marble. Guided tours are available, and if you visit from Monday-Thursday, you'll get a chance to view a session of parliament.
