St Boniface Cathedral, Winnipeg
(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Due to its constant evolution of form through expansion and multiple fires, St Boniface Cathedral combines both traditional and contemporary architecture. Take a stroll around the picturesque, well tended cemetery and visit the graves of historical figures and memorials to war. Look out for the cathedral's giant solar disc, left adorning its impressive original facade. A guided tour sheds light on this huge building's evolution, destruction and eventual rebirth into a functioning ceremonial house. To visit St Boniface Cathedral and get the most from your holiday in Winnipeg, create itinerary details personal to you using our Winnipeg vacation trip planner.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great backgrounds for wedding or family photos.
  • Beautiful exterior. Great place for outdoor photography.
  • quiet place. make me calm.
