Very well maintained. This is a very peaceful place and was a great stop to take a breath. If you are a spiritualist of any persuasion I recommend a stop here.

If you are in Juneau on a Sunday, do not miss mass here. And if you miss mass, it is still worth a visit to the shrine. Catholic or not, the serenity and beauty will renew your faith.

I loved visiting the shrine. While I am not Catholic, I enjoyed seeing the church and walking the meditation labyrinth. The site is simply gorgeous. The landscaping is lovely and involved a lot of indigenous flora. I liked walking along the causeway to the shrine; you could hear the call of eagles near by and there were even two friendly... More

Worth the drive past the ferry terminal to see the lovely coast line, large moss covered trees and the beautiful little church. A special place no matter what your beliefs are.

Very unique place. Amazing views of the ocean. Take your time when you go though the stations of the cross (even if you're not Catholic). Enjoy walking in the trees and seeing the views.

I wasn't really excited to go here, but once you get there it sort of sucks you in. The quiet, the beauty of the place, the history, its hard to describe, but you should visit if in the area

While in Juneau this trip we rented a car for the day. This gave the 4 of us an opportunity to go to Mendenhall Glacier on our own and then head out of town. This beautiful peaceful retreat was well worth the short drive. We had a picnic at the near by park and enjoyed our escape from town.

A few miles up on the Glacier Hwy north of Juneau is the shrine. It is worth the stop to take in the beautiful view of not only the shrine but the natural wonders all around. My favorite part was sitting on the little bench just of the shore and watching the seals play and the salmon jumping around. Breath... More
