The Second Empire style of Victoria City Hall is marvelous, especially the 105 foot clock tower. Architect John Teague is credited with the design. This heritage site, built between 1878 and 1891, still offices the mayor and eight councillors. Each one represents a different neighborhood. This National Historic Site of Canada is the architectural cornerstone of Centennial Square. As the name implies, the plaza commemorates the 100th anniversary of Victoria’s incorporation as a city in 1862. During the summer, come here to eat and tap your feet during the Lunchtime Concerts in the Square. The free performances are every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday starting at noon.
