The City of St John's

St. John's is the capital and largest city in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula on the island of Newfoundland. St. John's covers 446.04 square kilometres (172.22 sq mi) and is North America's most easterly city, excluding those of Greenland.
Its name has been attributed to the Nativity of John the Baptist, when John Cabot was believed to have sailed into the harbour in 1497 and to a Basque fishing town with the same name. Existing on maps as early as 1519, it is the oldest city in North America. It was officially incorporated as a city in 1888.
The city has a rich history, having played a role in the Seven Year War, the French and Indian War, the American Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812. Italian inventor, Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal in St. John's. Its history and culture have made it one of the world's top ocean-side tourist destinations.
