Discover The Fortress of Louisbourg Canada

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.
