Attraction

This star-shaped hilltop fort built in the early 1800s stands as a reminder of Halifax's role as an important British (and later Canadian) defence complex. Today, Fort George/Citadel Hill is federally recognized as a Historic Site of Canada. Climb to the top and you'll get to see incredible views of the harbour.
