Walking through Parliament Square, you can easily imagine the history and lifestyle of the early settlers. The area is well maintained and the colorful buildings are a delight.

This was interesting. There were huge pictures of politicians in the square. It was super hot the day we were there, so we didn't look at this area a lot, but it's right where the cruises dock.

The building are very interesting and the colors of the paint are very bright. There were plenty of markers that tell about the different buildings.

We were in Nassau, The Bahamas as a part of our cruise-tour to the Caribbean. As one comes out of the cruise terminal and port area - across the park is located the Parliament Square - a landmark. The statue is of Queen Elizabeth - made many years back as the Queen looks very young!

Small square with pretty pastel coloured buildings including the Assembly and Senate. But it was not clear whether one was invited to see inside, which might have been interesting given that the Assembly was due to be in session. Important historically, and a should-see on any (undemanding) short walking tour

This is right on the main road. We were in Nassau on a cruise. This is a easy walk from the port. Not a main attraction but a neat place to stop by and check out.

Parliament square is right outside the cruise port (Ferry port) and easy to find as it is the first thing you see as you exit the port on foot. The colonial type courthouse is beautifully maintained and has a statue of the young Queen Victoria in front of it (an ideal photo spot) If you are there early morning, between... More

There is lots and lots and lots of history in this area. There are also hidden treasures, so be sure to search a three block area or you might miss something. (There is even a virtual geocache in the area, if you are into that.) Though the Bahamians obviously appreciate their history, in my opinion they could "brag" about it... More
