There is a lot to see in the Basilica of St. Boniface. It is a marriage of old and new, stone and wood, grandeur and the very basic. First, the basilica faces the Red River on Taché Promenade and across from it is the Canadian...More

We wandered through the shell of the Basilique. It is an interesting stop while at The Forks as it is just across the bridge Provencher Bridge. It is a great place for some nice photos.

The "Mother" Church in Western Canada is 199 years old. The current renovation is preserving the "essential character" of the original building. The Basilica has played an important and diverse role in the historical development of St. Boniface... and it has added an "artistic quality"...More

Beyond the façade of the old cathedral and the adjoining cemetery, there really isn't much to see at this site. The new cathedral. located behind the façade of the original building, is a nice, modern building, but not a real landmark in my opinion.
