Halifax Citadel National Historic Site http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/lhn-nhs/ns/halifax/visit.aspx

Experience the Halifax Citadel, one of the most visited National Historic Sites of Canada, where the sounds of a modern, bustling port city are exchanged for the crack of rifle-fire and the skirl of bagpipes. The present Citadel was completed in 1856 and is the fourth in a series of British forts on this site. Today, the restored Citadel is a national landmark, commemorating Halifax’s role as a key naval station in the British Empire and bringing history to life in Atlantic Canada’s largest urban centre.
