Historic Attractions and Museums in Bonavista

The name itself is the essence of discovery: Bueno Vista - O Happy Sight! is how it translates from Italian. Legend has it these very words rang from the deck of John Cabot's ship the Matthew, when he made land here in 1497. They echo on in the Matthew Legacy Project, with our very own replica and interpretation centre.

Come to a place where brave explorers and fearless adventurers plied the waters of this rugged coastline. Immerse yourself in a sense of history thick with the language of a vital age, and gaze towards a canvas of horizon rich with images of hope and opportunity.

Bonavista is just over 100 km/62 miles north of Clarenville, from the west on Route 230 from Clarenville, or from the east on Route 235.
