A tour of this chapel is a real eye opener whether or not you are Roman Catholic. The relics are outstanding and the history of the founder is fascinating.

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
