The Shrine of St. Therese is an incredible place to stop enjoy nature and to reflect and relax. The shrine itself is a small church situated on a small island accessed by road from the short. The views from the island are incredible, we saw several whales and a good number of eagles. We really enjoyed stopping by for a... More

Beautiful Shrine and great views. Was kind of boring had it not been for the beautiful ocean views. I have seen it once, but won't see it again. If you have seen one mission, it kind of looked like most others.

What a lovely place! I visited the Shrine of St. Therese recently while on a cruise to Alaska. We rented a car on our Juneau stop to see Mendenhall Glacier and the shrine, and we found both were definitely worth it. The shrine is a stone walled chapel by the sea, a few miles outside Juneau. It's surrounded by tall... More

One of the most beautiful and short hikes in Juneau. Worth the long drive out the road. The chapel is a great place for weddings.

This is a must-see for travelers to Juneau. Don't forget to bring a camera and look for Sea Lions just off the rocky coast behind the shrine. It's paradise for bird-watchers and those who want to leisurely walk down a beach path enjoying local flora and fauna. The deeply religious symbolism of the paths and the columbarium are precious to... More

A little difficult to navigate out of the parking lot, but the scenery was beautiful - and once in the main area, signs were plentiful

This is a beautiful place to see. It is so calming. It is a great place to be able to relax. The grounds are great. I will go back and see it when i get back to Juneau.

We have been there twice. It is very calm and serene. I took pictures of each of the Cross Walk and made a scrapbook when I got home. I really felt the Spirit when I was there. We ever walked the maze.

The peace and serenity of the Shrine strike you as soon as you exit your vehicle...walking down the path toward the beach, breathing in the fresh air...Glorious even if you're not a religious person
