    So ruined that in fact there is nothing. We went to see this place as it was on our road. NOTHING IS THERE! Probably they destroyed the ruins.

    Had young adult son with us and impressed him with the architecture. Beautifully serene place. Not really in Cornwall so plan for a 20-30 min side trip to the country. Stayed about 20 min  more »

    Very interesting site. Magnificent stonework even though the ravages of time and weather have taken its toll. Quite a history when checking out the gravestones in the cemetery on the church property  more »

    Great part of Canadian history, recommend taking a trip here as you drive through the area. There are many different historical signs worth stopping for. Schools should incorporate a trip through the area to enhance the upper Canada/lower Canada education. This is definitely a piece of Canadian history.

    Wonderful memories here as a young girl. Now we moved here 5 years ago closer and we always make an effort to show others this beautiful place on earth that God created.

    A spectacular sight to behold - worth the brief detour if you're passing through just for the history, and the cathedral itself is amazing to behold. A unique piece of history!

    Small place not much to see but definitely interesting history

    I proposed to my Fiancée here last summer. It was a great place for a picnic. The walls are high, and if you are not there directly at noon, they provide a lot of shade while still being able to see the open sky. There is a large cast iron bell on display there from the fire that burned the place down that is half melted. Its a quiet little spot with some interesting history and a medieval ruinous feel that should appeal to any fantasy or RPG lover.
