  • I am not catholic, but appreciate the spirit I feel when I am in holy places. The structure is beautiful and the grounds are so peaceful even being so close to the freeway. It took us a year to go see...  read more »
  • Absolutely beautiful landscaping. Plenty of places to sit in nature. The shrine itself is peaceful, cooled/heated. So beautiful! 
  • MUST SEE - amazing experience - soooo peaceful - allocate the 2 - 3 hours where you can take in the entire location ... If I am in the area again on first things to do ! 
  • A great place to visit and relax. The quiet location sits on a hill overlooking I-80. It can be seen driving to and from Omaha. The shrine is free to visit during normal hours and they have a visitor center. There are small walking paths and benches outside of the shrine as well. I recommend stopping by and seeing the spot, especially at sunset. If anything it is a beautiful piece of architecture.
  • It is very unique glass church on the top of hill. There is a great view also. There is a dirt road rolling over a hill get you there but it is totally worth of effort.
  • This place is absolutely amazing. Make it a must when you drive by on Route 80. Take at least an hour. Also, check online whether they have scheduled concerts or church services. I will should the occasion ever arise again.
  • Simply breathtaking. Wish I could see it lit up at night!
  • Off the beaten path, beautiful glad I stop here .
