Saint Boniface Cathedral
The Saint Boniface Cathedral is the Roman Catholic Basilica located in Winnipeg, the current cathedral actually the 5th built on this site since 1818 by the same name.
During a visit to this stunning architectural gem, you will learn all about the history of this church and the churches of the past, the last one built in 1908 and destroyed by fire in 1968. This current church, designed by architect Etienne Gaboury, actually incorporates the facade and remaining walls of the last church.
Thousands of visitors come to see this church each year, as well as the cemetery, an impressive final resting place for several important Canadians, such as Louis Riel, who many believe is the founder of the province of Manitoba. Take a tour of the grounds and cemetery to learn more about those within!
