“The most passionate Basilica 90 miles from Havana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

No matter what your religion the sanctuary is very spiritual! From the Historic Church and magnificent stained glass...to the ancient grotto that protects Key West from major Hurricanes .... the small spiritual retreat on the same property is open 24/7

“interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I have to say it's amazing that key west has never been destroyed by the recent wacky weather events we've been having. On the trolley tour i learned that locals will pray to her here to protect the island! Must be working.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a beautiful church. The mass at 10:30 must be popular because it was packed! Arrive early to grab a parking spot and visit the cute gift shop. The gift shop has a lovely variety of items. My boys had fun picking out prayer cards for their teachers! The doors in the church were all open and the breeze was awesome! This is a must visit!

“Saint Mary's Church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Quaint, small, intimate, perfect for a wedding, especially if you have ties to the sea. Visit the grotto.
