There is a walk to the top of the shrine. Once you get to the top you have a peaceful view of the city. The drive up the mountain was great the deer crowded the side of the road.

I've been coming here since the late 1980s. I have never had a prayer submission that was not answered. The surroundings are inspirational, there is a real connection to a higher power here. Light a candle, say a prayer, watch a miracle happen! This place has prevented suicides, saved small animals, and even saved a troubled teen from the wrong... More

I have visited her school and chapel for orphans in NYC, and appreciated the visit in Colorado. As others have said, peaceful, prayerful, an important part of the history of the United States. Go when you need a reprieve, and sanctuary from the daily grind. Appreciate breathtaking vistas.

The story how this shrine came about is so interesting and worth the read. As you climb 373 steps to the top, you are able to pray the Stations of the Cross. The view is spectacular and the large statue of Jesus at the top that can be seen for miles is beautiful. The shrine is also known for many... More

We saw the sign for this when going to grave of buffalo bill...it is right down the road. If you are hardly, there is an enormous statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus atop a hill...or you can sit on benches in the gardens at the base of the hill and see it. There is a chapel shrine to Mother... More

This was my Great-Grandmother's favorite place when she came from Italy to live in America. It too is my favorite place. It is a spiritual place for me. I have always loved the Mother Cabrini Shrine since I was a child. I have also went to Easter service here. I also like their gift shop and the staff is always... More

This was an unexpected treat. On a whim, we went to see this shrine to Mother Cabrini. We knew very little of her before this visit, but now feel like she is an old friend. The chapel and the grounds were truly inspirational, to even non-Catholics. Nearly 600 acres were purchased by her long before this area was a hot... More
