Having only read about Louis Riel, it was very moving to see his burial place and to contemplate the important effects of his life on the history of Canada.

Very nice place to visit, a short walk from The Forks, Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Esplanade Riel bridge, in the French Quarter... well worth the visit, very nice setting and surroundings. Recommended to visit along with the St. Boniface University, just next to it

This church also has a graveyard where some famous Canadians are buried, the churc was burned down some time ago and has been rebuilt at the back of the original structure, very lovely old and new combination.

A really interesting restoration / renovation / salvage of a damaged building. The old cathedral was damaged & architects were given the job of resurrecting it. The old parts have been kept & a modern building built within for modern day use
