Gorgeous shrine and setting

The shrine is beautiful and it is set in the woods. The trail and vista are gorgeous. While some parts are more accessible, the trail to the shrine is not. Services are held here.

This was a beautiful little church set on a bluff. I visited this in the afternoon and it was the most serene setting. I highly recommend visiting this.

What a beautiful and quiet setting. Before the roads were finished, it was a very out-of-the way location. Now, though, it's fairly easy to get to, but for some reason - only the smaller private tour companies include it as a staple of their tours.

While my wife and I are not of the Catholic faith, our cabby-guide suggested we visit this Shrine... and thankfully we did! It is several miles drive out of Juneau, and well worth the visit.

It is a beautiful place to visit with the outside Stations of the Cross and a beautiful Chapel. The view is spectacular with the mountains and islands and sightings of whales, sea lions and jumping fish. The eagles are soaring and it is very majestic.

A short walk to an historical church and spectacular view of the waterway with a backdrop of snow covered mountains. This is wheelchair accessible.

The Shrine is located out of town and has a beautiful view of the passage. The trail to the chapel is easy and you can see the 12 stages of the cross around the island. The chapel is beautiful inside. The memorial is impressive and it was fun to walk and smell the roses in the gardens Definitely a must... More

I've visited the Shrine of St. Therese three times, and each time walked the labyrinth, hiked to the chapel and taken in the views of ocean and mountains. Parking is free and available and the visit is a meaningful experience.
