Went to the Shrine with my 18 year old son. Beautiful church and facilities. Great detail on the stations of the cross. The chapel is absolutely stunning.

The views from here were gorgeous. It was well worth the hike up the bluff to see all of the buildings featured. This was a truly remarkable experience. If walking is a challenge for you they offer golf cart rides to see the extravagant property.
