A true piece of Key West history. Beautifully decorated sanctuary. Easy location to reach. A great way to meet some of the locals.

This church is one of the oldest on the island. The stained glass windows are very beautiful. Would love to spend more time there...

This is a very beautiful place to attend mass. If the weather is cool enough they open all the side doors giving it an indoor/outdoor feel. Even with the doors closed it's lovely.

decor is great, the only thing I don't like is the fact that is right on street. I mean, with the cars and stuff happening outside it can be pretty distracting

To walk around Key West is to find treasures of gold and silver. Locked away in stories of Pirates and Marauders who roamed the island. but of the beaten path is a different kind of walk. at night, when the island is asleep and the winds are alive a church is open.

Such a peaceful and beautiful church. Loved the architecture and the decor. The doors being open on the sides made it so beautiful and inviting. The Grotto was lovely and I loved the history of Sr. Gabriel, and how Key West has not been directly hit by a hurricane since it was built. A must see, especially if you are... More

Fulfilled our Sunday obligation here before dinner on Saturday. Very nice service. A definite sense of community. Grounds are very nice, and thoughtfully done. Outdoor stations, a memorial for the unborn and a beautiful grotto. A nice place to visit and reflect.

When staying in Key West I attend services here. The building is beautiful and open air. On Fridays during Lent they have great, affordable fish fry dinners. The people are friendly and I feel very comfortable there.

This church is beautiful and has a wonderful history surrounding it. The priest had a very powerful sermon-not long winded; to the point and uplifting. 7:30 am mass was over by 8:10am.
