#3 of 6 in Things to do in Nord Department
Visit Cathedrale Notre Dame de Cap Haitien to find a typical colonial style cathedral standing tall over a cobblestone square. Inside, an almost all-white interior enhances the sense of spaciousness with tall white arches supporting the high dome shaped ceiling. Two side naves accompany a central nave where wooden pews lead down toward a central altar. If the church is closed, try hiring a guide to gain inside access.
