“Surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The top of Troy Hill is a little world unto itself. This chapel is amazing. The relics and especially the way they are displayed was truly astounding. Even if this sort of exhibit is a bit out of your personal religious realm it is still worth doing.

“What a treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

What a treasure! The chapel is so gorgeous... there are thousands of relics in this chapel. Only the Vatican has more. Stations of the Cross are lifesize carved from wood from Germany. The pews are mahoghany. If you can go when they give free tours it is worth it to hear the history behind the chapel. Many miracles have happened here as well. What a blessing and a MUST SEE if you live in Pittsburgh or are visiting here.

“a bit spooky but well worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

If you are into relics of saints and a bit of history, this is an amazaing place. It's covered with pieces of saint's body parts, which is kind of spooky, but this history that goes along with it and the faith those people had is wonderfully refreshing.

“Tranquil, beautiful chapel!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

A must visit for a Catholic or anyone seeking a nice tranquil setting. Relics are everywhere!!! Enjoyed the tour from the parish priest, who described the history of the chapel and how the relics were accumulated. Beautiful hand-carved Stations of the Cross. Went to Mass there the next morning. If you are visiting Pittsburgh ----- go!!
