Winnipeg’s French Quarter is the heart of the city’s history. Visit Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum and take a trip through Métis and Franco-Manitoban culture, and then explore Fort Gibraltar, a recreated fur trading post of the North West Company where costumed interpreters bring history to life. Wander the grounds of St. Boniface Cemetery and Cathedral, the eternal resting place of Manitoba’s founder, Louis Riel. Stroll neighbourhood boutiques and cafes along Provencher Boulevard, then walk over the Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge to The Forks.
