This historic octagonal Gothic Revival building is on the Parliament Hill, behind the Central Block in Ottawa. Its construction was completed in 1876 and was designed by Thomas Fuller (1823-1898) an English born Canadian architect, the designer of many federal buildings of his time. The building is famous for its richly coloured stonework, so I includes a closeup to show this with the overview. The building survived a disastrous fire of the Parliament buildings in 1916. The beautiful interior underwent a major restoration between 2002 and 2006.

A lovely construction, and I like that you showed both the full view and the close up of the detailed stone like this. its unique design actually reminds me of the very modern Roman Catholic cathedral in Liverpool!
All the best
