TT Parliament



Introduction

The "Red House", named after its striking colour, is home to the island nation's Westminster-model parliament. Damaged in 1903, it was rebuilt and refined with stucco ceilings, a rotunda cupola and a parapet on the roof. An attempted coup d'état in 1990 left the building shelled and 24 people dead, but democracy intact. An eternal flame on a marble cenotaph was put up outside as a reminder of the vigilance required in the protection of democracy.
