Nova Scotia Lighthouses

As a long island like peninsula in Atlantic Canada, Nova Scotia’s coasts have been protected for centuries by several faithful lighthouses. These historic buildings are now touristic landmarks. When you go there you shouldn’t miss the Lighthouse Route – you will not regret.
