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.

My wife and I visited the grounds and took part in the 4pm Mass. It's sad to see the place in need of so much repair. I hope those repairs are done, timely. This place is so beautiful and deserving. It is a must see...

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
