Even if you are not Roman Catholic, this is a wonderful place to visit. Even with repair work going on it was worth going to see. On this last visit we only stopped in the visitor building to light a candle in the little chapel. It was too cold to wander about the grounds and over to the church itself,... More

The shrine and grounds are really lovely, peaceful and quiet. Definitely worth a vist. The place needs some funding, it's a bit shabby and needs some upkeep that looks a bit overdue. Nice place, I plan to go back in the summer when the gardens are blooming.

I visited The Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Novenber it was absolutely Beautiful. It was all lit up with different Tableaus of Christmas scenes. We were there at dusk so the place seemed magical. The Basilica was filled with Peace and one could get lost in contemplation of life and The Great Spirit's love for us. I think... More

If you are visiting Niagara falls, then it is worth visiting this place. This is a catholic shrine and is well maintained and green all around with beautiful trees, a nice pond, a few fountains, and flowers. The shrine itself is shaped like a globe with the virgin Mary standing on top of it. Most saints have their statues here.... More

I had never heard of this place before and went on the recommendation of a stranger! I'm glad I went. Very interesting place. The shrine is a very open and inviting place. Make sure you check out the mural in the back chapel as well as visiting the statue on top of the building. There is also a large religious... More

We visit this place every year. We love the tranquil small lake with trees and benches to relax. There is also a shaded section for picnic. The new covered gallery around the church , makes it easy to visit the different chambers behind the church itself, where you can see the Virgin and the little pastors she visited. Nobody asks...

Many places to walk around and just be at peace and relax. Statues of all of the Saints, the main building is beautiful. If you like this type of stop,... More
