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!

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.
