Older Catholic church off the beaten path. I've been on many different occasions and each time it impresses me with its beauty and peacefulness. The longer you walk around or sit and let your eyes wander around the more beauty you see and feel. it's a must visit if your touring the local wineries.

I found this church on our way across route 66. It is worth the stop to see. A german church with an outstanding organ, and gold decorations. The artwork is amazing.

There is an observation outlook on the edge of the parking lot. Fantastic view. As good as any on the Pig Trail. Be sure to stop for a quick... More

This church is absolutely gorgeous inside and sits on top of a mountain with an amazing view of the valley below. Words just can't describe how incredible this location is.

Located on the way up to Wiederkehr Winery - this church has a panoramic view of the valley below & if you know about it, you can see the church from across the valley. It's beautiful!

Beautiful church, but unless someone tells you about it, you won't know that you can stop and check it out. It is open and you are welcomed to come in and take a look around.

If you in Ozark or Altus you have to stop here to see the church and the view of Altus from the top. Bring your camera and enjoy.
