  • Great spot for engagement session photos! Pre book, Diana is lovely to deal with and is readily available to open up the ruins if needed during closed hours.
  • This is an incredible place to visit. Very hystoric and the beauty of the ruins is sheer beauty at it's best! Just entering the ruins of St. Raphael's will leave you in awe of it's incredible external views and it's easy to picture the interrior of the church FILLED with parishioners at 1 point before the church burnt. Our family goes for a visit to the ruins as often as possible and to say hello to family members who have passed and to stare at the ruins and imagine it's beauty when she stood tall and proud.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful structural stonework. I can see why people would want wedding pictures, music recordings etc done here. Took a walkabout in the old Cemetary- many stones so old and eroded you can barely read them. Worth the 30 minute drive from our gotel.
  • 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.
