Very nice place to visit, a short walk from The Forks, Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Esplanade Riel bridge, in the French Quarter... well worth the visit, very nice setting and surroundings. Recommended to visit along with the St. Boniface University, just next to it

This church also has a graveyard where some famous Canadians are buried, the churc was burned down some time ago and has been rebuilt at the back of the original structure, very lovely old and new combination.

A really interesting restoration / renovation / salvage of a damaged building. The old cathedral was damaged & architects were given the job of resurrecting it. The old parts have been kept & a modern building built within for modern day use

The shell of the original church built in 1900 is beautiful. Inside the new church the stain glass reflects on the altar at sunset. It’s a short walk from the Forks over the river to theFrench area

There is a lot to see in the Basilica of St. Boniface. It is a marriage of old and new, stone and wood, grandeur and the very basic. First, the basilica faces the Red River on Taché Promenade and across from it is the Canadian...More
