Kitschy, but a great example of religious devotion and a neat thing to see. Worth a detour off the highway to view.

This was just one of those 'oddities' that you see along the state highways. It's definitely worth a stop. Very unusual!

I have been wanting to stop at the Grotto for years. My husband grew up in the area so he thought it was not worth the stop. We finally made the trip and it was wonderful. My girls loved everything about it and I thought it was very inspiring and uplifting.

We were passing through this way and had a new teen with us who had never seen this. If you haven't been here or haven't been here in awhile, it is awe-inspiring to stop and look at. You will just be amazed to see everything that went into making this structure. It is interesting to take note of the little... More

If you live in Wisconsin or are passing through the area, this is definitely a one of kind road stop attraction. There is a suggested donation of $2 and it takes 10-30 to wander around and take in all the intricacies. A lot of time and thought was put into this folk art and the result is pretty amazing. Be...

You definitely have to get out of your car to appreciate the workmanship and the wonder that has gone into this. We saw people drive by, stop and take pictures but to truly appreciate this you need to see it up close. When we first pulled up, I was not impressed but when I got closer, I was taken back... More

Fascinating shrine built from the ground up, with concrete, stones, glass and pottery. Incredible to consider all the work that went into the construction. Well worth a few minutes to look around.

I had been to the Dickeyville Grotto years ago, and when I found my wife and I passing through Dickeyville, I figured it was worth stopping for. There is a recommended donation of $2 each, which is very reasonable. We spent about 20 minutes walking around examining the little pieces that made up the Grotto. While this is a religious... More

This church adjacent park is a wonderland of religious themed outsider art. A testament to the tenacity of one man's faith, this creation is amazing to behold. Even non believers can admire the artistry and grandiosity of this monument. Also there is a church thrift shop next door, and they have great bargains. This is a worthwhile place to stop... More
