Climb to the top of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and meet your historically costumed guide on the drawbridge at the main gate of the Halifax Citadel. For 70 minutes, you'll be led by candlelight through tunnels and prison cells, and hear true accounts of unexplained events in their actual locations.
