 Annapolis Royal : Introduction | Frommers.com
Annapolis Royal is arguably Nova Scotia's most historic town -- it even bills itself, with justification, as "Canada's birthplace." The nation's first permanent settlement was established at Port Royal, just across the river from the present-day Annapolis Royal, in 1605 by a group of doughty settlers that included Samuel de Champlain.
(Champlain called the beautiful Annapolis Basin "one of the finest harbours that I have seen on all these coasts.") The strategic importance of this well-protected harbor was proven in the tumultuous later years, when a series of forts was constructed on the low hills overlooking the water.
Indeed, Annapolis Royal is also considered by many historians to be the birthplace of historic preservation.
