We went as a group of women from church. We started at the church with Reconciliation and Mass. The music was spiritual, and the message uplifting. We had lunch in the dining room, and the service was excellent, especially with a group as large as ours. Good food. We were then able to break up into smaller groups to take... More

I'm so glad I finally took the time to visit the Shrine. Even if you're not Catholic, I think you will enjoy the quiet and prayerful environment. Now I'm using the word "quiet" kinda loosely. There is a wonderful walkway up the hill to the chapel and the church. I did not like the sound of the gas powered golf... More

It's located in a very quiet, serene and beautiful setting. It's a path through nature where you visit 13 devotional areas and statues. The area includes the shrine church the statue of Saint Juan Diego, an area where they have the stations of the cross, A rosary walk and beautiful votive candle Chapel. There is,we estimated,about a mile of walk... More

We recently lost our son and this sounded like a great place to come and reflect, it was. Very peaceful and quiet. Lit a candle for him. Beautiful grounds. Our son's confirmation name is Isidore, the statue wasn't there yet, but it was a sign for us <3.

Kind of a surprise to find a well visited religious shrine in a beer town. The beauty of the walk(hike) up to the shrine served as the days exercise and the experience visiting the many grottoes and church was fascinating. The do have carts for those unable to make the trek. A pleasant change from the downtown bar scene.

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...
