High on the hill overlooking the Port, she was built to protect the Capital.
It’s obvious when you see the layout,why this strategic hilltop location with a commanding view of the Halifax harbour was chosen in 1749 for the fort destined to protect the city. The star-shaped Halifax Citadel is a MUST see destination for locals and tourists a like.
Take a step back in time, with a guided tour, changing of the guard, bagpipe music, period dress. Have a coffee and treat at the coffee shop, a walk through history in the museum…This is an experience you won’t want to miss!
