Fortess of Louisburg

A visit to the Fortress of Louisbourg, the largest reconstructed 18th-century French fortified town in North America, is a series of experiences that set a mood. Ramparts, streets, households and 100 costumed staff help to create the look, texture and mood of another century. Heavy cannons on stone ramparts, a busy waterfront tavern and a roasting spit turning in a crowded kitchen all tell how people of a different age lived and worked.
