The Martyr's Shrine sits atop a hill. I went there hoping for ... I don't know what. Others had told me that it was life changing for them. Beautiful building and grounds with a good vista of the surrounding area.

What a holy and special site this is. Attended Mass there at Noon, and then walked the grounds.... so peace-filled and relaxing. There were pilgrims from all over the world attending Mass. So nice to see their Faith. Had a small lunch at the little restaurant there.... pricey for what you get, and the food quality wasn't the best. A... More

Dedicated to the Canadian Martyr's, the Shrine is a beautiful sight. Even if your not the religious type, the history in there is worth seeing and just walking in the gardens is a very relaxing experience.

We went to the Martyr' s shine to experience not only the church but the many acres of parks and scenery. The church is beautiful and you can feel the presence of the pat as you stand or sit quietly. The parks are well manicured with many beautiful statues and plaques. The fall colours over looking the bay are breathe... More

I love to go to a mass here at the Martyrs' Shrine, they have beautiful grounds. Amazing view at the lookout. I recommend everyone to come at least once to see this beautiful church. Even if you are not Catholic, it is a must see

The church is built on a hill and it looks nice when we were on our way there. The church looks beautiful on the inside with all the wooden decor on the walls and ceiling. The garden outside the church is decorated with different statues and way of the cross. The lookout in the garden has a very nice view.... More

This is a gorgeous and inspiring religious edifice. The shrine is a gem in the Georgian Bay area. The grounds and walkways are so well maintained and there is lots of access to historical information. The interior is very evocative with lots of statues and altars and it is little wonder that pilgrims arrive at this shrine. If you are... More

What a gem of a church with beauty, history and tranquility. The grounds and the church itself is breathtakingly beautiful with grand interiors and well kept grounds and lawns. Each and every corner is filled with religious history and provides lot of information and bring out the awe. The inside of the church is so beautiful. There is a small... More
