Newfoundland, an island off the east coast of Canada, is known for its majestic beauty and spectacular rocky coastland.
The capital city, St. John’s (pop. 150,000), situated on the east coast of the island, is one of the oldest cities in North America. With its secluded harbour, a city centre built on steep hills, and its many colourfully painted wooden houses, St. John’s is a city with a culture unique to the continent.
There are numerous historical sites, prestigious art galleries, and a wonderful selection of very fine quality local arts and crafts.
