Mont-Carmel is a village in the Evangeline Region, which had been settled by French-speaking Acadians in the 1700s before they had to escape into the forests when the British began deporting them.
The village and its surrounding area is characterized by brightly painted houses with Acadian flags. There is also a French-language theatre in the area, not to mention an Acadian Pioneer Village. This pioneer village encapsulates the look, feel, and décor of the bygone era. It is a reconstruction of an Acadian log settlement from the 1820s. A restaurant that adjoins the village specializes in Acadian cuisine.
