  • Nice to see, but wouldn''t go back. If you are Catholic it might impress you more. It is in the open so not as good on rainy days.  more »
  • A really neat world tour of famous places painstakingly built out of rock by a Monk near the turn of the century. Great Catholic bookstore attached and the Abbey grounds are worth a walk around  more »

  • Beautiful place. I still order their bread and jam online. Amazing place that should be on everyone's bucket list.
  • Definitely a Bucket List trip. One of my favorite places...so much beauty and I always feel so much peace here. Every time I've gone, there's been an adorable kitty tour guide who likes to walk you through the Grotto. I hope he or one of his descendants is still carrying on the tradition.
  • Fascinating, detailed collection of religious sites, shrines, and a few European buildings! There are several shrines for saints, which I imagine are more appreciated by Catholics than non-Catholics. Very affordable, especially with a Groupon!
  • This was a Beautiful and Peaceful place to see,,,,this priest worked long and hard the buildings and everything. Believe it or not I have a book about this place ,have you not been you need to go.
  • Great staff at Gift store. Love the bread
