Glad we picked up a brochure, as our GPS didn't work here--the lady at the book store said this is normal. I've been to a number of shrines, but I didn't feel anything special here. You can walk around, seeing many many statues (all with prominent plaques--so once again, as I've noted at other shrine sites, there's an obvious emphasis... 更多
We have been going to this Shrine many many times. This is one of our favorite places to visit, not too far from Toronto, just a few minutes from the Canada/U.S. border through the Lewiston bridge. The main church has a globe dome, i.e. when you are inside the church and look up, you can see the silhouette of the... 更多

Lovely Shrine to visit. The church is large but for a peaceful place to pray the rosary, find the small, original chapel housed within the gift shop. Perfection. The grounds are calming and worth the walk. Drive from there to Devil's Gorge to appreciate the majesty down stream from Niagara Falls.
This is located 15 minutes from the USA-Canada border. Don't forget to bring your passport with you. Opens 9am. There were sculpted saints around the water fountain. The image of the Fatima located at the top of the church is a must see.
What a beautiful experience! The statues are amazing. We enjoyed a peaceful walk at our leisure. Would love to see again after dark and/or when the flowers are all in bloom. (A recent lack of rain left the lawns and plants burnt.)
Not far from Niagara Falls NY. I it is just a lovely place to go and meditate, reflect and play. Nothing commercial about it ad it is not crowded...
Everytime I'm in upstate New York, always visit this beautiful national shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. From the Basilica's unique dome to the hundreds of statues found in the expansive grounds, this place is special. It is a nice refuge from the outlet shopping frenzy along Military Road.
I walked around the grounds and inside the main entrance to discover the many artifacts, shrines and visual replicas of our Christianity teachings. It was breathtaking. I purchased a few items after saying prayers in the Sanctuary and left. Feeling Peace in my Heart. Amen!
