Particular attention should be paid to the historical monuments of Philadelphia. Independence Hall is by far the most popular sight of the city. In the end of the 18th century this hall became the witness of two important events. In 1776 here was proclaimed the Declaration of Independence, and in 1787 the hall became the place of the U.S. Constitution adoption. One of the hall’s pavilions still carefully keeps Liberty Bell, the ringing of which in 1776 marked the acceptance of the declaration. Besides administrative buildings you will find here several important religious sites - Church of Christ and Church of Joseph. This architectural complex is surrounded by a large park. Walk along it and you will visit a wonderful portrait gallery and see one of the largest U.S. banks. This quarter, which is surrounded by numerous alleys, plazas and a park, is considered the historical center of Philadelphia.
Elforta alley is another attractive place for walks. Here you will find 30 historic houses built in the 18th - 19th centuries. The old station is also located here. The station looks exactly the same as it has looked during the years of the Great Depression. Among other notable buildings of the city we should definitely mention Powell House, which has been turned into a museum.
