Discover Louisbourg National Historic Site

Enjoy the sights and sounds of Louisbourg National Historic Site, North America's largest 18th century historic reconstruction. Admire the spectacular setting of this fortress and an impressive view from the harbour. Join visitors as they cross a bridge and enter the world of historic Louisbourg. Stroll along the cobblestone streets with costumed interpreters as they go about their daily activities. Watch soldiers in period costumes march in unison and fire their muskets. Peek inside the historic houses, inns and other buildings and get a taste of what you can see and do at Louisbourg today, including bread baking, basket-making and cooking. At the blacksmith shop, watch a blacksmith at work and feel the heat of the red-hot fire. Enjoy the sound of traditional music throughout much of this video.
