The colorful port city of St. John’s is the capital and biggest city in Newfoundland and Labrador and is considered to be one of the oldest settlements in North America. The brightly-hued Victorian row houses that line St. John’s narrow streets are known affectionately as “Jellybean Row.”

Rumor has it that the houses are painted in vivid colors to brighten up the city’s natural foggy landscape, but really, it was a project spearheaded by the St. John’s Heritage Foundation in the 1970s that inspired the way the houses are painted today.
