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.
