A place to visit. The grounds are welcoming and it's history interesting. Very peaceful inside. Take a moment to sit and absorb it's beauty and power.
If you are visiting Niagara falls, then it is worth visiting this place. This is a catholic shrine and is well maintained and green all around with beautiful trees, a nice pond, a few fountains, and flowers.
