The square currently has portraits of important people in Bahamian hisoty. It is very informative. Visit around when Independence Day is celebrated on July 10.

This is in the middle of the downtown main street. It's just a house and little else but very quaint and neat to see. If you are in Nassau with nothing else to do, it's worth walking past.

Parliament Square is more of a location or destination than a place you can hang out. Its significate is that it’s where the government of the Bahamas governed years ago and still meet today. We could not go in to see inside, but you can’t go to down town Bay Street without passing it. You will see it on your... More

We asked respectfully if we could have a photo next to the statue of Queen Victoria. Of course we could and one of the smart men in black suits even... More

Parliament Square is an easy walk from the dock and worth checking out simply because the building is such an unusual color for a government building.

It the heart of Nassau, in amongst the shops and tourists, is the functioning centre of the government of the Bahamas. There's quite a bit to see in this area; not that it will take you very long. There's the Judicial/Court area, the Parliamentary area (there are 2 Houses of Parliament for the Bahamas - the House of Assembly and... More

When you are bored with the beach and need to escape from the jewelry stores and souvenir shops of the main drag you can stop by this square with a nice statue of the queen.
