Reviewed January 13, 2014

The hurricane grotto in the back is really awesome, walk behind the church for a look and light a candle.

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I love this church. It has an old traditional feel but very casual especially when all of the doors are open on the sides and you hear roosters crowing in the morning. There is a small gift shop on Windsor St and the Basilica also has 24 hour adoration.

“A Beautiful Catholic Church”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We attend mass at Saint Mary's every time we visit Key West. It is a beautiful church. It is an old fashioned church with lovely statues, painted beautifully and has a very welcoming atmosphere.

“don't miss inside”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stopped by just to take a photo and almost missed the beauty of inside. It was just after Christmas and the place was decorated in such a beautiful way.

“Absolutely Beautiful”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Gorgeous to tour through and the grounds are truly breathtaking. Don't forget to stop in the small store in the back for a new rosary or prayer card!
