Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

While Canada is a relatively young country, there are many architecturally significant buildings and landmarks for you to explore in Alberta. Our oldest building is a chapel built in 1861 by Father Albert Lacombe as the heart of the settlement of St. Albert. Here, and at many other historic sites, costumed interpreters will take you back in time. From Edmonton’s Legislative Assembly of Alberta, built of marble and local sandstone in 1907 in the Beaux Arts style popular at the time, to the Calgary Tower built 60 years later of concrete and steel, you’ll discover fascinating architecture around the province that expresses our evolving history and culture.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Star Mine Suspension Bridge is a 117 metre long pedestrian suspension bridge which crosses the Red Deer River in Rosedale, just outside of Drumheller, Alberta. Constructed in 1931, the bridge was built for the coal workers of Star Mine. Although once used by miners, the bridge is now a favourite among locals for fishing and to access great Badlands terrain. Enjoy hiking, hill climbing, a day use area and the great opportunity for sight-seeing. Free attraction.
