Grand-Pré National Historic Site
In the 17th and 18th centuries, before being expelled by the British during the French and Indian War, the Acadians (descendants of French colonists) resided in Grand-Pré. This marshland and park, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, commemorates the displaced settlers, known for their system of dikes, which protected land reclaimed from the sea. Among the highlights are the statue inspired by Longfellow's poem "Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie" and the memorial church, with lovely stained-glass windows.
