“Don't Bother”

Basilique-Cathedrale de Saint Boniface
Ranked #16 of 209 things to do in Winnipeg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 September 2012

We took time out to vist the Bailique-Cathedrale de Saint Boniface because Saint Boniface came from near where we live Crediton about 6 miles from Exeter, but to be honest there was nothing to see as the Cathedral had been bombed during the war i presume. ? and there was not much of it left apart from a near by Grave yard which once you have seen one grave yard you have seen them all i would recomend you vist the museum and learn something about the Red Indians than waste your time looking at a burned out wreck.

Interesting ruined facade in lovely garden setting with Louis Riel's grave, Different! The effect of blue sky through the open ruined rose window is quite beautiful. Modern church in the ruins a work in progress.

The cathedral that would have probably been worth visiting burned down a long time ago. What's left there now is a wall from the old building and a relatively new, below average looking church. The Louis Riel burial site is in the church's cemetery.

This beautiful surroundings and history of the French Quarter are a very interesting part of Manitoba's birth.

We went to Saint Boniface to take a look at their museum and visit the 'French quarter' of Winnipeg. We came across the cathedral on our way to the Museum... we spent some time in the cemetery where we stumbled on Louis Riel's tomb... the remnants of the old basilique (it burnt down) are amazing.
