Fodor's Expert Review Tilting National Historic Site

Fogo and Change Islands Town/Village
The community of Tilting, on Fogo's far end, is famous for how well they have preserved their "vernacular" architecture—small boxy wooden houses right on the water's edge with a simple and practical center-hall design broken into four small bedrooms upstairs to maximize on privacy and minimize on heating costs. The Dwyer Fishing Premises won an award for preservation of the architectural heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador, and along with the Old Irish Cemetery, the Lane House Museum, and Sandy Cove Park, make for a complete afternoon outing. If the weather is nice, a picnic or camping on Sandy Cove beach is a treat.
