At the end of Broad Street in Bridgetown are the parliament buildings that date back to 1874. The parliament was founded in 1637 and has met regularly since 1639. Nice renaissance style buildings and there is a museum inside to visit.

Attractive building in the center of town with a beautiful clock tower. Didn't expect to see this with the beautiful marina right next to it. A mix of old with new. A good place to take some pictures.
