Halifax Citadel National Historic Site
Open May to October, this star-shaped, British fortress was built between 1828 and 1856 and is the fourth version of a major fortification on the site since Halifax 's founding. Its position atop a drumlin affords it an excellent, erstwhile strategic view of the harbour. The town clock on its eastern slope has been operating since 1803 and is an iconic image of Halifax . Visitors to the fortress are treated to the 78th Highland Regiment, the Royal Artillery, and people representing soldiers' wives and tradespeople in Mid-Victorian dress. The guards change, and the cannon is fired daily at noon , a tradition that goes unnoticed by locals within hearing distance. The site occasionally hosts concerts and plays by Shakespeare by the Sea.
