The story of Assisi Heights and its place in Rochester history was amazing. Our tour guide was one of the nuns who was one of the most fascinating women I have ever met. Don't miss the chance to visit this wonderful place.

The Sister at Assisi Heights are amazing women who do incredible things around the world. The Assisi Heights spirituality Center is a breathtaking building and their grounds are wonderful. There are tours on Tues and Saturdays but also on request if you call ahead. Its wonderful to just enjoy the calm surroundings and architectural beauty. Visit the Clare Reflection Space... More

The grounds and buildings are beautiful. The history is amazing. I learned a lot about Mayo Clinic. The sisters that I met were very kind. I took a guided tour by one of the sisters and would recommend it to others. I would love to attend a mass at the church.

This is a place of spiritual healing; you drive to the top of the hill, and are greeted by beautifully landscaped and private grounds. I feel at peace here.

We walked around the entire building as we couldn't find a door unlocked to enter the sanctuary. Beautiful steeple and the bells ringing added to the ambiance.

Beautifully landscaped, with a great view of Rochester. Lots of interesting architecture and a chapel worth checking out. If you can catch one of the public services.

A get away is in order when you are visiting Mayo for treatments/doctor visits. This was a quiet, beautiful church - worth the taxi ride.
