What a beautiful park. There are 63 steps up to the Lady of Fatima statue but well worth the view! Lots of other beautiful statues throughout the park.

Lovely Shrine to visit. The church is large but for a peaceful place to pray the rosary, find the small, original chapel housed within the gift shop. Perfection. The grounds are calming and worth the walk. Drive from there to Devil's Gorge to appreciate the majesty down stream from Niagara Falls.

This is located 15 minutes from the USA-Canada border. Don't forget to bring your passport with you. Opens 9am. There were sculpted saints around the water fountain. The image of the Fatima located at the top of the church is a must see.

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
