  • Quiet, peaceful, and near nothing but small town Iowa. Truly the middle of nowhere, but take the time to visit. Beautiful place to visit just for the architecture. Perfect place for a pilgrimage if you do such things.
  • This is a beautiful and moving grotto with a story of the Lord's healing as a history. The grotto has the stations of the cross and one may meditate and pray at each of them. I took the tour which is very good and there is a nice gift shop across the street.
  • My grandparents took me and my brother here when we were young. I was just recently reminded of the Grotto because of a snapchat article of unique places in every State. I'd love to visit again and take my son when he's old enough to comprehend the amazing wonder that this is.
  • Beautiful, peaceful, quiet, awe-inspiring. This place is worth a visit!
  • A great place to go with the family. It is a beautifully constructed (and upkept) grotto covered in gems and stones from around the world. The grotto's images portray the story of the life of Christ. It is by donation, so no payment required, and there is a gift shop and museum as well.
