Grand Pré... update
Posted by: HoboSylvain | 2013-06-25 19:41:38 | Grand Pré, Nova Scotia, Canada
Keywords: Landscape, UNESCO
A few days ago when I visited Grand Pré... I was too involved with the history being told by the commemorative site there that I completely forgot that if the location is a UNESCO World Heritage Site wasn't for that reason. In the official documentation of the UNESCO, they do mention the deportation of the Acadians... but what was recognized is the landscape.

All that plain of Grand Pré is usually under the water when the tide rises, forming a large marshland. But the first settlers, created a system of dykes to protect their fields and be able to cultivate them. That site is known as the best remaining example of the adaptation of settlers to the conditions in North-America.
