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.

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.

Beautiful old cathedral that was burned out in a fire. The new church is behind the ruins. The Cemetery is in front and Louis Riel's grave is there. You can get great sunset shots here. In the summer they have theatre in the cemetery that...More
