Colourful Lunenburg

Old Town Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is one of only two urban communities in North America to have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s also considered to be the best surviving planned British colonial town in North America. Its harbour-side streets are lined with well preserved and colourfully painted historic buildings.

This colourful section of King Street is known as the UNESCO Fresco!

Canada’s Maritime provinces are dotted with old wooden churches, none more beautiful than St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg.

Visible for miles around, Lunenburg Academy, built in 1895, dominates the hilltop. Imagine going to school there!

Though we’d visited before, we thoroughly enjoyed wandering the streets and busy harbour front again.
