The Peace Tower

The Peace Tower
Ottawa, Canada

The Peace Tower in the center block of Parliament Hill is dedicated to 65,000 soldiers who gave their lives during the World War 1. Pointing to the heaven up high, it measures 92.2 meters and a freestanding bell tower (whatever that means). The bell chimes every quarter hour and it is one of the towers all across Canada that houses the carillon, a set of bells sounded from a keyboard (think about a piano that produces sounds through the bells) which the player has to punch the keys with his lightly closed fist.
