We loved St. Boniface and the Cathedral is a great place to visit to see a piece of the history of the city. It is very interesting to walk through the cemetery (with a French dictionary) to get a different perspective on how rugged the territory must have been. The museum down the street offers a play in the cemetery... More

The cathedral of St. Boniface is a fantastic visit, right in the French quarter of Winnipeg. On plaques, inside, is the story of St. Boniface, which truly is a fantastic tail. The entire property including the cemetery was very interesting.

Saw this our first night - it is absolutely beautiful. We were there about an hour walking the grounds and taking pictures. Wish we knew more of the history before we went. There was a mass in progress and the songs of the choir added such a feeling of peace for us. Very nice!

This a must see. We had visited the location in the late evening which had made for some good photos. A local of the community stopped and explained me the history. Great! Peaceful and serene.

I really enjoyed mass here, except I had no idea what the priest was saying. That is, of course, my fault for purposely attending a mass said in French. After mass, a very nice couple approached me and gave me advice about Winnipeg. I also met the priest. Coming here made me want to learn French.

It is a beautiful church, the original had burned, but the most walls and front didn't burn, so they are part of a courtyard. There is a cometary next to the church that is very interesting too

Check out St. Boniface and visit the Basilica! A wonderful combination of the old and the new! Walk up Provencher Boulevard and enjoy the French flavour!

A must see! It is really neat to see this the building of this church and the story behind it! The people are friendly and you get a a real live history from people playing the lives of the people of Manitoba many years ago. It is not expensive and really worth seeing. Lived in Manitoba for 3 years, there... More

This church was and will always be beautiful. It must have looked majestic before most of it burned in a massive 1968 fire. In 1972 a smaller cathedral was built in the originals ruins. It's not nearly as impressive, but I don't ever intended to be. The cathedrals cemetery includes the final resting places of notable French Manitoba leaders such... More
