We were wandering around and came to the square and thought how pretty it was. Old buildings with Palm trees - it looked very colonial and exotic. The policeman there was so nice and didn't mind when we took his photo - it is such a nice uniform compared to other police forces. Not a great deal to do but... More

It was interesting to experience a bit of (pseudo) European culture so close to the US. We were sorry that we missed the changing of the guard because others said that it was fantastic.

Sorry, but if you are expecting a day of sightseeing in Nassau, I am afraid that you shall be disappointed. "Sightseeing" here amounts to nothing more than a stroll around. You can always take a look at the designer shops but they are just the same as they are at home or you could try out a bar or a... More

Pink and while Government buildings, regal palm trees, Queen Victoria statue, court house, 1800's ocatgonal jail, (now a library) Royal Bahamas Police dressed in sharpest uniforms ever - happy to pose for a picture...just ask! Check out Cafe Matise on the east side, popular with the judiciary, locals and visitors.

Historical and very educational. I loved that the buildings were pink. Many of the buildings in Nassau are pretty colors

Parliament Square is definitely worth seeing. The buildings are beautiful. Wish the police were a little more friendly, though.

This is one of the best Squares I have visited clean and kept up. The history from hear is one that you will take with you if you take the time to look and read.

We were walking around the shops and had to stop to look at the Parliament buildings. They are kept quite lovely, and are bright pink (they certainly stand out!). We ran over to them to take a picture, and a police officer walked over and offered to pose with us. Beyond being a nice photo op, I don't really know... More

I like the Parliament Square with the combination of showing-off historic figures from the history of the Bahamas and the actual sitting parliament forming the future of it. It is inviting and well-kept and a true centre of Nassau down-town.

On my many trips to Nassau, I've never seen anything other than the outside of this building. They decorate the outside depending on the time of year, but there's really nothing to see. It's a historic building that provides a nice photo. We were here during the 40th anniversary of freedom from Britain celebration, and there was still no information.... More
