Even though the building is shrouded in plastic and surrounded by cranes due to restoration it is still an architectural marvel. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to come back to Trinidad after it's finished.

If you are in town this year, walk to Woodford square, the university of woodford square..lots of public debates under the trees. The Red House is a very old admin building and used to be the seat of parliament. But opposite an old Church built in 1833 is being demolished....so hurry !!

I no longer travel near this landmark building in our country. Port of Spain on the whole is a traffic nightmare and the building itself presents government priorities in its bland taste. Good for a once in a while visit but I prefer to stay far.

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.

Looks great from afar but dilapidated up close and under renovation although I saw nobody working on it when I walked by. Could be a great place!
