This was always building in which we had so much pride & now it has been under renovation for years and it appears to be sitting idle. In the past 4 years I have been back 3 times and the progress is at a standstill. Very sad to see this majestic building not being utilized.

Seems that this place has been under renovation for quite a long time now. You can still get a few pics in but it's hard to avoid the scaffolding surrounding the building.

This is a beautiful building from the colonial days, used for parliament sessions. It was under renovations when I visited, so not very much to see at the time.

You must visit this House of Parliament. It was here that the coup-de-etat took place many years ago. You should visit when the repairs and extensions are complete in Feb 2013.

It is a great shame as I remember the home of Trinidad & Tobago's Parliament as a striking and awe inspiring building but you will have to take my word for... More
