I visited Mother Cabrini Shrine on a cold, wintry day. That limited our ability to see the whole site but gave us a much different perspective which everyone enjoyed. The main visitor's center has a chapel, gift store, and rooms for meetings. The museum room was under renovation so we did not see that. Outside are several gardens, the freshwater... More

We really enjoyed the peace and serenity of this site which has a small traditional Catholic church, a gift shop (with lots of St. Cabrini stuff) and the shrine itself which sits atop a mountain. The climb is moderate (300+ steps) and is paved. There are numerous benches to stop and rest and stations of the cross along the path... More

A must visit for the faithful. Water is a precious commodity in this arid place, but Mother Cabrini found both water and Gods blessings right here. Every step up the shrine is inspirational.

After our visit to buffalo bill's site first made our way to mother cabrinis shrine. Trip up a road and past retreat house until you get to chapel and steps up to her statue. We were able to go into gift shop and the have our items blessed by a priest there. I was disappointed that we did not get... More

It was a long climb to the grotto but it was worth the effort because the view was great. We met some friendly tourists as we climbed the steps (373 steps). The view up there was gorgeous especially on a clear and bright afternoon. After we got out of the chapel, we saw three deer feeding themselves by the fence.... More

This was not on our list but heading towards Evergreen from Denver, we saw the sign on I-70 and decided to follow it. We were so glad we did. What a view from this site. The site itself is not all commercialized. It has a small gift shop but it is very serene to just walk around and read about... More

I walked 373 steps to see the Jesus statue, but it was all worth it! Throughout the adventure of walking these steps, there are also stages of when Jesus was carrying the cross, I loved itM It is such a beautiful place to visit no matter what your religion is and the statues as well and while you're up there...

I am not a Christian but visited the Shrine out of a sense of attraction. The somewhat European look got me interested. The place was very quiet and serene. There was an unmistakable sense of peace. I felt better afterwards. I visit the place periodically.
