Wonderful Cathedral! The person at the service desk was amazing and offered us advice about where to go in the city and told us about the Cathedral and it's history. Very well done! Loved it here! Come see Louis Riel's gravesite!

The Cathedral and the nearby St. Boniface Museum are an integral part of this city's history. Although it succumbed to fire in the 1960s, the rebuild that is housed within the walls of the original is an architectural coup. Museum is housed in the oldest building in Winnipeg and offers a rare glimpse of local history, including that of Louis... More

The cathedral was built within the ruins of the orginal church destroyed by a fire. The architect was very creative and designed the building to fit within the walls of the ruins of the previous church. Very creative way to link the present with the past. A must see for architecture buffs. The adjoining cemetery has a few historical persons... More

I had previously seen Basilique-Cathedrale de St-Boniface from my mom’s sightseeing pics. I wondered then about the façade’s big bare rose window and initially thought it was just ruins and nothing else. When we finally got to visit Winnipeg, our first actual look at this limestone landmark was across the Red River from the Tower of Hope (Canadian Museum for... More

The remains of the Cathedrale of St. Boniface is interesting to see, but only the shell remains with a very modern chuch built attached to the shell of the old Cathedale. You can wander through the cemetery and see all the old tombstones.

The St. Boniface Cathedral is very nice, it was nice to be able to see the maquet how it was before the fire. If you go inside, you will be able to learn more about the construction. The grounds is well kept and it is a nice walk. Very peacefull location.

We visited the cathedral during our last full day in Winnipeg and I'm sure glad we did. The cathedral and grounds are very beautiful and there is a good view of the river from the front gate. Lot's to see, including Louis Riel's tomb. Highly recommended.
