“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a beautiful, picturesque spot. Not much to see here but if you have a car and are looking around, stop by. It's free and worth the stop.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

There is more to Juneau than Mendenhall Glacier and Downtown shopping. Travel "out the road" to experience the tranquility of the Shrine of St. Therese. Make it a two for one trip and go to Eagle Beach, and definitely go at sunset.

“Quaint and Nicely Done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Peaceful, well maintained. The facility is well maintained. You will be treated to spectacular views. It is quiet. You will enjoy having a wonderful time. Feel free to meditate and commune in a peaceful environment. From the viewing point, we saw whales, and sea otters. It is a well kept secret. It is worth the time and expense to view.

“Beautiful setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We visited the Shrine of St. Theresa as part of our tour with M & M Tours. Our guide was Gary and he is a lifetime resident of Juneau. He was very knowledgeable about the area and a fantastic guide. The shrine is a beautiful setting and well worth the drive out from Juneau. We definitely recommend you add it to your list of things to see.
