Although I visited the cathedral and cemetery early in a summer morning, I liked the calmness and peace I felt there. Many famous people are buried there and there are several monuments and sculptures of religious or historical interest.

Went here without a tour guide and walked around. Very interesting just being on the grounds. Got deserts and chocolates in the shops close. Pretty area.

This Cathedral is a must-see for anyone going to Winnipeg. You'll also want to go to the St. Boniface museum, where you can get the whole story of the tragic fire that took down all but the front of this building.

The Basilique-Cathedrale de Saint Boniface is quite renowned, thanks to the tomb of Louis Riel. He was buried in November 1885, A brown pillar indicates his tomb. Some think he was a hero, others thought he was a rebel. The basilica looks quite beautiful on...More

One of my favorite places to go shoot photos. Gorgeous architecture with tons of history. During the late summer to fall months it is perfect for sunrise photography.

If you are looking for a piece of history in the old French side of town this is not to be missed. Walk the property and see the unique architecture. Bring your camera. Best to see in warmer months.

St. Boniface Cathedral is an amazing structure rife with history. The 1906 cathedral was significantly damaged by fire in 1968, leaving only the facade and walls of the old church. There is something unique about this "skeleton" that remains. As you walk through the structure,...More

Went here, spent about 20 minutes, left. Nice to see but wouldn't go out of my way to visit here. There are grander things to visit in Winnipeg. But if you've got the time, it's worth the go...
