In the 1700's, Louisbourg was one of the main mercantile shipment points between Europe and the New World. Twelve hundred civilians lived comfortably and prospered within the stone walls of the fortification under the watchful eyes of the 500 French soldiers garrisoned there. The Louisbourg fortification was completed in 1745, on the eve of the first siege by the English. Today, Louisbourg is a rare historical jewel; a world class historical restoration on the tip of Cape Breton Island. In their hasty departure, the French left millions of documents and artifacts behind, effectively creating the blueprints for a detailed reconstruction of the original site. Immerse yourself in 18th century French Colonial life; the food, the architecture, the businesses, and the seamy side.
