Citadel Hill - Near the center of the bustling port city of Halifax, on a high point of land overlooking Halifax Harbour, you will find the 19th century military fort, the Citadel. The present structure of steep masonry walls and numerous stone lined underground rooms, was completed in 1856 and is the fourth in a series of British Forts at the site. Today, the restored complex is a national historic site, commemorating Halifax's role as a key naval station of an earlier British empire.
