I stumbled upon the chapel by accident on a recent trip, but I was very impressed with the decor and the surroundings. Walking in almost gives you the feel of getting in a time machine. However, this is certainly not a "must see" stop for travelers to this area as you would be in and out of the chapel in... More

Was out in the area for something with a friend and went to visit the chapel. It was lovely. There is so much beauty to be seen, it cannot be adequately described. If you are in the area it is well worth the stop to take the beauty in.

Nestled in the center of the Marquette U campus this remarkable edifice stands in stark contrast to the surrounding architecture. Relocated from it's original home over 500 years ago, the chapel is reported to be the only medieval structure in the western hemisphere used for its original purpose.

The chapel is in a beautiful setting on the campus of Marquette. You must park and walk to see it, but it was worth the view. Quite charming!

I was raised Catholic, went to Catholic schools and even through I am not practicing now, this was an amazing sight to see. As someone who appreciates and adores historic sites, this was amazingly breathtaking. 2nd century Roman urns outside the chapel and 14th century chapel and adornments in exquisite condition for their age, just beautiful.

Imported brick by brick from France and re erected in Milwaukee, this small gem is located on the campus of Marquette University. A wonderful surprise and a place now used as it was many centuries ago.

Chapel sits in the middle of the Marquette campus. Had a wonderful tour and learned the history of the chapel. It seems so peaceful in a college setting.

Be sure to kiss the cold stone - kissed by JOA herself. A nice walk when visiting the Marquette campus. A hidden gem!!

This sweet little chapel only takes a few minutes to really see it, but you can definitely spend longer taking it all in. To imagine that there are stones and icons centuries old . . . and then imagine whose eyes rested on them centuries ago . . . it's a place worth your time in contemplation. It has a... More
