The Grotto is lovely and peaceful. By far the most unique part is the elevator, which is built adjacent to the 110′ cliff and has only two stops. I got on at the bottom, the location of Our Lady’s Grotto, a gift store, and the largest of the churches. and got off at the top, the site of the gardens, other smaller churches and religious artwork. The grotto is a rock cave carved into the cliff and feature a life-size marble replica of Michelangelo’s Pieta.
The complex is free to visit, but there is a $5 charge to take the elevator. It’s well worth it. To learn more, look here.
