What a beautiful experience! The statues are amazing. We enjoyed a peaceful walk at our leisure. Would love to see again after dark and/or when the flowers are all in bloom. (A recent lack of rain left the lawns and plants burnt.)

Everytime I'm in upstate New York, always visit this beautiful national shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. From the Basilica's unique dome to the hundreds of statues found in the expansive grounds, this place is special. It is a nice refuge from the outlet shopping frenzy along Military Road.

I walked around the grounds and inside the main entrance to discover the many artifacts, shrines and visual replicas of our Christianity teachings. It was breathtaking. I purchased a few items after saying prayers in the Sanctuary and left. Feeling Peace in my Heart. Amen!

I visited the Shrine with my grandchildren, ages 6 and 9, because I heard there was a holiday light display. It was just beautiful. Be sure to take the stairs to the top of the Shrine to see all of the lights below. Also, inside be sure to walk around as there are separate little chapels where you can light... More

I wanted to see the Festival of Lights before they closed for the season, and I thought tonight was the final night. It wasn't and unfortunately tonight was VERY cold. I enjoyed it anyways. The gift shop is lovely. The basilica is gorgeous. The light are magnificent. I hope to visit in warm weather to see what it all looks... More

Christmas lights at the shrine were very pretty. It was neat to walk up to the top of the shrine and B&B lookout and all the Christmas lights.

It's a bit hard to find in a north east corner of Lewiston, but if you are on Route 18, there is a large sign at the corner of Swann Road. Just head a bit east and it's on your left. Plenty of free parking with easy access to three areas - the gift shop/cafeteria complex (with washrooms), the worship... More

The shrine is absolutely beautiful. It is so peaceful, quiet, and a great place to get next to the Blessed Mother. The shrine and all the grounds are beautiful. The various chapels are beautiful and tranquil. The gift shop is very large and has almost everything you would like to have. The cafeteria was closed when we went, but we... More
