We have taken people there several times. The first time the food was excellent and of great quality. The second time it was not so good...the person making the omelets the second time did not do a good job...browned on the outside and not done on the inside. Not sure what the difference was between the two days but am... More

We had seen signs for this, but hadn't gone before. This time we went and we were very impressed. The place is very spiritual, as well as beautiful. We were impressed!

Very serene location. Nice hike up into a bluff area. Chapel with candles is very pretty. We were a little late for mass so did not go inside the cathedral building. Did see all the other monuments and buildings. Worth spending an hour or two visiting while you are in LaCrosse. Bring a camera.

We went to the shrine expecting to see a statue and perhaps a chapel and came away with the most awesome experience in LaCrosse. The beautiful setting and prettiest chapel in Minnesota set the tone for an interesting and inspiring tour. The young can walk and the middle to old can hop a golf court up the hill. Easy walk...

We decided to take a little time before a relatives wedding to see the shrine. I wish we had allowed ourselves more time! The outdoor grounds are stunning and the walking path up the hill to the candle shrine and the church are so beautiful. We stopped in to see the church but there was a program going on and... More

Was looking to see some Wisconsin sights during our one free day in La Crosse. Really, OLG was very, very nice. It's run by volunteers who are so happy to have you there. They are informative, pleasant, and helpful. And this multiacre site is more than just a large old cathedral. There is a lovely welcome center and a gift... More

Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine is up in the bluff area south of LaCrosse, WI. There is a wonderful visitor center which includes a large gift shop and cafe. Golf carts provide rides half a mile up the bluff to the beautiful church. Mass is offered in Spanish, Latin and English. Natural beauty is abundant!

I used to visit La Crosse about 4 or 5 times a year and would go to the site and watch the construction progress as the entire complex developed. Now complete, it is truly a site to behold. The feeling you get as one walks up the trail from the Pilgrim Center to the Shrine Church is overwhelming. They've done... More

Quiet place, great for walking in nice weather. It's interesting to see the history and details put into the grounds. The shop and restaurant would be great for a light lunch or brunch. Make sure to check hours, it's a ways out of town.
