  • Architecture at its finest. They sure don't build beautiful structures like this anymore. Thank goodness part of the building was saved so it could be appreciated for generations.
  • Beautiful sacred space with ties to many historic figures and events. Well worth the visit even if one is not religiously inclined as the view of downtown Winnipeg across the river is just postcard perfect.
  • Beautiful church with a cemetery serving as burial ground for prominent Winnipegers. There is a nice view of The Forks and downtown Winnipeg from the grounds.
  • Very classic statues. Fantastic building
  • There isn't much about the new, modern Cathedral to attract, but the remains of the Old Cathedral stand as a testament to the power of beauty, richness, and architecture.
