ArchBishop’s Palace Queen’s Royal College The Magnificent Seven A row of buildings in Port of Spain’s Queen’s Park Savannah are perhaps the best representations of Trinidad’s differing colonial-era architecture styles and is known as the Magnificent Seven. This row contains Queen’s Royal College built in 1902 in austere German Renaissance style; the early 18th-century home of the Bishop of Trinidad, Hayes Court; two French Provincial-style mansions; the 1903 Archbishop’s Palace; the Moorish-Mediterranean Whitehall and Kilarney which was designed to resemble a wing of Scotland’s Balmoral Castle. www.gotrinidadandtobago.com Hayes Court Roomor Knowsley Building Stollmeyer Castle Whitehall Photo Credit: Trinidad & Tobago Tourism Development Company
