Some folks may not like a place like this, but for me it was a thrill. You must read the background to get a real understanding of what this priest did to build this shrine. You don't even have to be religious to get the sense of his purpose. You can view the shrine in a few minutes or stroll... More

Unique work of art that is indeed a treasure. What a surprise in this little town! There is also a gift shop on the grounds with surprisingly unique items.

When we pulled up to the Grotto, I was surprised that there was a young girl sitting at the entrance wanting a donation! Usually, there is an area in the gift shop or church for donations to be given (without be asked), so this really surprised me. This Grotto is small compared to others that I have seen. Not anything... More

This amazing grotto has so much to offer in the way of detailed stone/glass work. Holy images as well as patriotic ones all done by one man many years ago. Tiny pieces of glass and beautiful stones help to make up this very welcoming and peaceful place. There is a gift shop with many items and the prices are reasonable.... More

Just amazed that someone could gather all the material necessary and have the time to build this amazing grotto. Since I am not an artist, I am also amazed with the instinctive and intuitive characteristics these people possess.

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.
