Old Cathedrale du Cap-Haitien

Old Cathedrale du Cap-Haitien

Haiti has many beautiful cathedrals, but none equal the tall, white, sun-splashed, and stately Cap-Haitien Cathedral.

Built on the main plaza of town, the structure is a well-aged example of early 20th century architecture.

A part of Haitian history also resides on the church site, a statue of rebel leader Mackandal. He led an infantry of black slaves fighting to free themselves from French domination in 1712.

Once called the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the church is now the Cathedral of Our Lady.
