Port-Royal features a reconstruction of the Habitation, one of the earliest European settlements in North America where Samuel de Champlain lived in 1605.
Costumed interpreters share with visitors the challenges faced by the French, and their friendship with the Mi’kmaq. It is located in Port Royal, Nova Scotia.
The Habitation and public washrooms are closed for the season. The parking lot is not plowed. Full programming returns mid-May!
