“There is a story here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

I understand Key West gets a pass on hurricanes. All because of prayer done here. It's also a nice break in the day. Lots of plants and shade. Free, that's different in Key West.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

This church is magnificent. Recently designated a basilica by Pope Francis the church is beautiful. Nice tidbit is the grotto in back was deemed to protect the church from hurricanes. The church and grotto are still standing.

“Spiritual Connection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Walked the rosary stepping stones and spent time at the grotto for a special prayer. Very peaceful and comforting. You can walk the Stations of the Cross too.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Peaceful beauty throughout the church & it's surrounding grounds. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a marriage blessing at morning mass. The historical church was casual & welcoming.
