Grand Pré is a Parks Canada National Historic Site. It commemorates the establishment of the Acadians on the banks of the Minas Basin and their deportation, which began there in 1755. Equipped with an impressive interpretation center, this site celebrates the courage of the Acadian people. These people who fought against the greatest tides in the world, who said no to the war and despite their deportation, will have maintained their cultural identity.
