Attraction

Signal Hill has a rich history. It's the spot Guiglielmo Marconi received the first wireless message via Morse Code in 1901. It is also the site where the harbour military set up from the 18th Century until WWII.

Also on Signal Hill, visitors will find Cabot Tower. The tower was built to commemorate the 400th anniversary of John Cabot's discovery of the province as well as Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
