Fun!

We loved walking in this place. I found there are a lot of mosquitos in July because we got eaten alive but we still love this place. :) Fun for kids to stretch their legs.

Me and my gf traveled around winnapeg at night just to explore and were really impressed with this old church. we were the only ones there so it was kind of creepy around the graveyard but it was a really cool experience.

Great place to visit and spend some time looking at the centuries old gravestone markers of Manitoba's forefathers. Beautiful scenic view from the Forks which is across the river the Provenche` Bridge and the Human Rites Musuem and Goldeye Stadium-its like taking a step back into time taking in the architecture. Old historic building structure of the original St Boniface... More

Beautiful entrance and interesting cemetary as you walk in...but the actual cathedral is a very boring new building. You wouldnt go out of your way to visit this but worth it with a trip to the museum close by.

The old part of the church is beautiful I can only imagine what it looked like before but it was a great idea to put the new church inside of these old walls. Well worth your time if you like churches and their history behind them

I walked across the bridge from The Forks to see what remains of the St. Boniface Cathedral which burned for the 5th time in the 1960's. I also wanted to see the lace where one of my ancestors was during the early 1900's. Unfortunately, there are no records left, but it was a spiritual experience and the Louis Riel monument... More

There isn't a lot to see at the Cathedral site, but what's there is beautiful and well worth the visit. Well-preserved ruins of the burned-down cathedral, plus the grave of Louis Riel - a very important place for Manitoba, and the only attraction of its kind for Winnipeg.
