We drove by the ruined cathedral during the November rioting in Port-au-Prince, so our choices on what to see were very limited. Our tour guide and driver drove by Notre Dame, but felt it unsafe to stop for too long. Windows were tightly shut and doors locked. There was a heavy military presence and tires burning in the streets. Granted, this was during an unfortunate upheaval, which accounts for the alarming security, however even during the best of times, our guide would not have gotten out and walked around the building due to unsavory characters and muggings. We have been to nearly 40 countries, feeling free to walk and explore on our own, even some of the most impoverished places, but not Port-au-Prince. Very unfortunate, but it's not worth the risk. Definitely don't try it on your own!

If you are white you will be robbed or worse. If you have to go in a group with at least 1 armed bodyguard. Full of dossiers just waiting to rob visitors.

I've visited a few times just driving by in Port. When friends from the US came to visit, I decided to hire a driver I know and do some more of the touristy things in Port (I'm American but have lived here for 6 years almost). The driver was able to get me inside the gates around the ruins - where my friends and I were able to walk around up close and really get a true sense of the enormity of the event. While we couldn't enter (entrances are boarded up), the ruins are a sobering reminder of what happened here in 2010, and the effects that event continue to have.

Drove by the building and around the back side. Probably not a good place to visit if you do not have some natives with you. Probably not safe to get out of car and walk around.

You have to see the damage done to this beautiful building. Completely destroyed. Seremons are being held outdoors near by.

Sad that the church not yet has been rebuilt. Be careful walking in this area. Safest to stay in car.

These ruins give somewhat of an indication of the physical damage of the earthquake as you can clearly imagine the size and grandeur of the Catherdral before it was destroyed. Of course, this needs to be filled in with people's first hand accounts and reading about the destruction which occurred physically and emotionally. But it's definitely worth a visit. There are many memorials to those who died which were also important for me to visit.

Been here 3 times and it's still sobering again and again. A reminder of a national tragedy and a capital that was rocked by the death of thousands of people.
