The Grotto is a very interesting little place. Consider the time it took to create as you wander around.

This has to be the most hidden treasure in Wisconsin. Only photos can describe the beauty of this creation. It is an artful creation that simply awes as you walk through the outside art created by what looks like gems....kind of like a giant mosaic....More

What an amazing place and when you think of the story behind it what an inspiration the Priest who dedicated his time for 5 years to build it is, no plans just divine gidance. Well worth the time to stop

Grottos like this are truly one of a kind. I stopped by here on my way back from Dubuque and it was very much worth it. It's so incredible how little gems like this in the middle of nowhere can really stand out.

We recently went on a ride to see some fall color and stopped at this Grotto by accident. What a beautiful tribute to God and Country. .i wish they had more literature on the how and why this was built,It was quite inspiring.
