|Cape Forchu Lighthouse, near Yarmouth Nova Scotia|
Voted the best public space in Canada,
in a competition held by the
Canadian Institute of Planners.
Definitely a Lightouse to Visit!
The Cape Forchu lighthouse, on a headland at the south western tip of Nova Scotia, is the light for the town of Yarmouth and its harbour. The structure rests 37.5 meters (125 ft.) above sea level, is nestled into jagged rocks and offers a breath-taking natural vista.
