UNESCO - Landscape Of Grand Pré, Canada

The Grand Pré  landscape is an exceptional example of the adaptation of the first European settlers to the conditions of the North American Atlantic coast.  Over 1,300 ha, the cultural landscape encompasses a large expanse of polder farmland and archaeological elements of the towns of Grand Pré and Hortonville, which were built by the Acadians and their successors.
The postcard shows a statue of Evangeline (an epic poem Acadian heroine), a stained-glass window in the nearby church, and a panoramic view of this National Historic Site. Thank you Susannah :)
