Pictured here is the Parliament Hill surrounded by snow in the winter. Pointed archways, tall windows, spires and stonework are some of the Gothic elements incorporated on the parliament buildings. The complex consists of three blocks. The Centre Block is home to the iconic 98-metre-tall Peace Tower. The West Block and the East Block consist the House of Commons and offices of the senators and the members of Parliament.
