Introduction: Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a French archipelago south of the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Sparsely populated Miquelon-­Langlade island contains the Grand Barachois lagoon home to seabirds and seals. The busier Saint Pierre island has a distinct French atmosphere with a cathedral and the Musée Heritage which celebrates regional history. An island nearby Île-aux-Marins features an abandoned fishing village.


Overview: First settled by the French in the early 17th century the islands represent the sole remaining vestige of France's once vast North American possessions.
