Treasured Architecture Cap-Haitien Cathedral

Cap-Haitien Cathedral is one of the most visually stunning pieces of architecture in town. Found on the main plaza, it has been lovingly cared for since its completion in the early 20th century.

On the church site, a part of Haiti's history is symbolized by a statue of Mackandal. He led an army of black slaves, the Maroons, fighting to emancipate themselves from French-occupied Haiti in 1712.

The Cathedral, once named Cathedral of Notre Dame, is now the Cathedral of Our Lady.
