Basel's beautiful red Town Hall is the seat of the government and parliament of the canton of Basel. The building, located on the main market square, was constructed in the 16th century to the design of Ruman Faesch. In the 17th century it was enlarged and the facade was painted by Hans Bock. Further extensions took place in the 19th century with the addition of the left wing and the tower on the right.
