Just walking into this church makes you feel humbled and holy. Be sure to take the time to have one of the experienced guides tell you the history of this fantastic church.

We visited the chapel during Holy Week. There are so many relics from different saints! The Stations of the Cross are the most beautiful I have ever seen. They are life-size and just amazing.

While I am not a Christian or a Catholic, I found the energy of the chapel to be otherworldly and excellent. It is quite beautiful inside and like other's have noted, the labeling on the relics is minute and impossible to read. I was disappointed...More

This is hard to comprehend and overwhelming in that respect that there are so many relics encased in the chapel. You can't really see them or know what they are for the most part. The Stations of the Cross are moving.

Interesting Catholic Church. 6,000 relics purchase by a priest in the late 1800s. Go for the tour 1pm to 4pm. The docent did a great job talking about the history of the church and sharing stories of the healing power of Jesus. The life size...More

Took a tour of the chapel and saw the relics contained therein. The architecture and stained glass windows were marvelous. The relics, I have to say, were a little bit of a let-down. Not a disappointment, per se, but not what I expected. Granted, I...More

I am unsure of the days or hours of operation because they do vary and are dependent upon just a few who maintain the site so worth viewing. Check website which I am not permitted to give but is saint anthonys chapel. org
