  • This was an unplanned stop at a place we never heard of - while we were traveling someplace else. We were totally blown away at what we found here!!!! Located at St. Bernard Abbey on 4 acres is a beau...  more »
  • Been wanting to stop here for years. Finally did! And it didn't disappoint . Very beautiful setting and I loved the artistic miniatures. Brought the Bible alive. 
  • Amazing work, so much to see, phenomenally good value and a must see...doesn't take too long but a feast for your eyes and on beautiful extremely tranquil grounds. A real gem of a find!

  • We were visiting family in Huntsville and decided to take a drive down, we were not disappointed! The artistic work and such detail is amazing! Definitely worth a visit! The staff was very friendly too. We purchase a groupon and saves a little money.
  • The grotto itself is magnificent. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Spend as much time as you want admiring the miniatures. Bloomin' Festival is lots of fun. Great variety of artists and craftsmen, food and music!
  • Beautiful and unique attraction. This place has an interesting history and beautiful attraction. Plan to spend about 30 minutes to an hour just in observation and reflection. A true work of art.
  • This a wonderful place to ponder the inner being with prayer and contemplation. Brother Joseph had a sense of humor, as seen in his chipmunk crossing. There are a couple of shines dedicated to Veterans that made the ultimate sacrifice.
  • If you like seeing one of a kind attractions you'll love the grotto. So many tiny buildings (So are very detailed and some are pretty odd), and a peaceful area to walk around. Usually you can find a discount on Groupon for a better price.
