This was part of the Flavors of Philly tour and our tour guide, Matt, told us many interesting facts about City Hall. Although our walk through was brief, it was very interesting.

This is every where you go. No matter which way you turn you will see a side of this building. I was impressed at its placement, architecture, and size. I was also excited when I was told this is where Nicholas Cage filmed National Treasure.

City Hall is a massive structure and represents the center of Philadelphia. At the top is a 37 ft statue of William Penn and it remains the tallest statue on any building in the wall.

Breathtaking architecture and such a grand feeling walking through the archways. Walking the exterior perimeter you will see many cool bronze statues. Exiting west to Dilworth Park and it’s extended events just adds to the experience.
