Saint Pierre and Miquelon is an overseas collectivity of France, a tiny remnant of Nouvelle-France – once enormous French colonial empire in Northern America.

These small islands have a picturesque Nordic landscape and for several centuries are inhabited by people of European descent. Warfare and diverse accidents have eliminated the more ancient buildings and now the island does not have that many heritage values left.
