Are you a fan of UNESCO World Heritage Sites? Did you know that Newfoundland has 3 UNESCO sites? They are the Viking Settlement at L’anse aux Meadows, Gros Morne National Park, and Red Bay Basque Whaling Station. See 3 sites.
“The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization(UNESCO) has identified just over 800 places in the world that are of outstanding natural and cultural significance. There are 17 in Canada, and3 are in Newfoundland and Labrador. Two of them – Gros Morne National Park and L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site – are located on the west coast of the Island of Newfoundland, and are only a few hours drive apart on the aptly named Viking Trail. The third – Red Bay National Historic Site – is part of the Labrador Coastal Drive. It can be reached via ferry from St. Barbe, Newfoundland, to Blanc Sablon, Quebec. From there it’s a short one-hour drive to the site.”
