    I was shock, happy, sad to see the Cathedral of Hinche, my beloved hometown in the net. It is beautiful! Thank you! I am not ashamed to say this the first time that I see it. Keep putting positive images about Haiti on the net and specially about Hinche such peaceful and beautiful town that I love and miss so much. For me, please keep showing Hinche!! Good job! Good luck! God Bless you!

    thanks for showing my native corner thru such a bright and beautiful image.Next time show us a picture of bassin-zim,the giant water fall that stands majestuous second to none in the northeastern outskirt of the city just miles away.Show them the oldest church of the new world built in the early 1500’s just blocs away from the new cathedral.

    While enjoying the picture of the new cathedral, we should not forget the old one. It has some historical value for being one the oldest churches of the New World.

  • Ronald Sylvain

    This conveys more than just an architectural piece, it is also an artistic value; it’s almost camouflage with the firmament…Wow.
