  • Absolutely gorgeous grounds, beautiful church and chapel, impressive collection of first class relics. I highly recommend making the drive from the Cities. Be aware that it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the church. It is a beautiful walk and very well shaded by the foliage so it wasn’t too hot. It is also possible to get a ride in a golf cart if required. When I visited, I noticed that two priests continued offering reconciliation after the mass started so everyone who was waiting was able to receive the sacrament.
  • Purely amazing. If you’re not religious or Christian, it’s still a sight to see. There are umbrellas available to borrow if it rains and they have a golf cart that does rounds to bring people up to the temple, and back down. All the sites alone the way are beautiful. They also have a small cafe with breakfast, and on Sunday their brunch is all you can eat! In September they also have a big celebration for the lady! Definitely recommend this site!
  • Amazing and very breath taking. The view and people are very friendly. The handicap golf kart that they provided which sits 10 helped get to the top of the hill and the best part it goes up and down the hill every 20 minutes. The statues and the gift shop are wonderful
  • Almost unheard-of traditional architecture and art in this day and age. Seems to have been built 100 years ago, but this place was completed so recently. Beautiful! Nice trail makes it a perfect visit for a walk too.
  • Profound. Pristine. Peaceful. Tranquil. Serene. Powerful. Beautiful. Inspirational. I could go on and on… We absolutely loved our chilly morning stroll up the path to the church and were able to catch a bit of mass. The acoustics are phenomenal while the attention to detail in the artwork and structural creativity are all incredible. This place is worth visiting no matter what religion you practice - it truly does leave a lasting impression. Wonderful. If I lived in the area I would attend weekly mass here without question.
