The Fortress of Louisbourg Canada
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Fortress of Louisbourg

This fortress is located on Cape Breton Island, not far from the St. Lawrence River. A former strategic fortress dating from the colonial war of 1745 between the French and the English, all that is left of it now are a few of its original walls and some parts that have been reconstructed. Nevertheless, history buffs will be delighted with the life-size reconstructions that are organised to help visitors understand the geopolitical importance of Nova Scotia in the 18th century.
