Many a time we have come here to enjoy the tranquility of this shrine and the area. - Statues and angels are abound - as is the energy here. - There are areas to contemplate... read more

It was very interesting. IT was touchy. The place was kind of rundown. Not able to keep up the beauty.

Sorry for the late review but I just remembered that I had not written about the beautiful Shrine that we visited in November 2012. Some of our friends had recommended this place to us it was truly a beautiful experience. As soon as you park (free parking) and start walking around you can feel how calm, peaceful and serene the...

Came from the Canada border and made a stop to this beautiful church. Was able to get there on time for the mass. The place is so peaceful and green. If you have more time, take a stroll around the area. The chapel inside where you can write your intentions is a nice and very serene. There's also a gift... More

The main Basilica is constructed as a dome with glass covering that has the continents of the world on it with blue for the oceans. You can walk to the top of the main Dome Chapel as it is called (85 stairs) for a panoramic view of the park-like grounds. There is a heart shaped Rosary Pool with lights forming... More

My first visit to the Basilica was during the Christmas season. My suggestion is to visit the small Village of Lewiston for dinner and then take a ride to this quietly spiritual shrine. The Christmas lights add to the visual beauty of the holiday. From the top of the shrine, you can view the grounds in all their splendor. The... More

This shrine is breathtaking from atop the basilica building. Looking down over the grounds you can see the statues form a rosary. You really feel like you can touch heaven. The inside of the Basilica is beautiful, especially the small side chapels. Take the time to light a candle for a special attention. There is also a large store on... More

Couldn't find this place whatsoever and it did not generate an accurate location on my 2014 map on my GPS. I do not see all the statues listed under this posting. There were NO SIGNS to go to this place. How did people find the location of this PARK?! It takes $2 dollars from Buffalo areas to that place. So... More

It is so beautiful, quiet, I just love it there many things to see and learn. Read a book, the reflection pond is the best ever and the rosary is around the pond. You can go to the top and see forever.
