Explore Inside This French Fortress

Forty-five minutes from Sydney is the fortress of Louisbourg, a French fortress that has been reconstructed as it was in the 18th century. It is North America’s largest reconstruction project and is operated and maintained by Parks Canada. It depicts the life and culture of the early French settlers and offers some of the most unique experiences on the entire island. Fire an antique musket or learn how to fire a cannon as they did 300 years ago! There are even tours for tasting Fortress Rum.

Visitors of the fortress will find it easy to self-direct their tour and lots of handy brochures and maps are provided. You should give yourself two to three hours to do the tour properly and be sure to wear comfortable shoes and take a warm sweater. Step back in time with this one-of-a-kind Cape Breton, Nova Scotia experience.
