Great setting at Marquette

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

I love history, especially when it is preserved through art and architecture. Though small it is charming in its detail. Come sit awhile and feel the ancient vibes

So long ago, so much a part of history. Tucked into Marquette Univ. campus between more modern taller buildings, it is a genuinely reflective piece of history. Built in France, attended by Joan of Arc in the 15th century, dismantled and rebuilt on Long Island, N.Y. In 1920's then relocated to Milwaukee, it is a must see for everyone/anyone. The... More

How cool is it to have this chapel in downtown Milwaukee!!!??? It is somewhat humble, but for history buffs ( or especially religious history buffs) this is a must see!
