Transatlantic Cable Ensemble (C)
Transatlantic Cable Ensemble (C) is part of the Tentative list of Canada in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Transatlantic Cable Ensemble comprises both end-points of the first trans-oceanic submarine electric telegraph cable: Valentia Island (Ireland) and Heart’s Content (Canada). The connection became successful in 1866 and improved the speed of communication between the continents significantly. At both sites, the historic cable stations remain.
