Ottawa Canada Visitor Information and Guide
The Peace Tower is one of Canada's most emblematic symbols. Visitors to Ottawa can climb the historic tower and enjoy a spectacular view of the city.
If you visit Parliament Hill between September and June, you can enjoy a carillon performance from noon until 12:15 on weekdays. There is a one hour recital beginning at 11 AM during the summer months.
The Peace Tower Carillon was inaugurated on Canada Day (July 1) in 1927. It was built to commemorate the Armistice of 1918 and Canada's 60th anniversary of Confederation. The carillon has 53 bells.
