We walked up the hill and all the stairs to get to the church and it was well worth it. The views are spectacular. You don't need to go inside if that's not your thing, you can enjoy just being there.

Immaculata Church as a beautiful view of the city just outside the front doors. It is also home to the Mt Adams Steps and the Good Friday tradition of "praying the steps." Would definitely recommend that everyone does it at least once.

Holy Cross - Immaculata Church is a peaceful, holy place. Even in the traditional climbing of the steps on Good Friday in the midst of a mod of other worshipers it's easy to find peace. On any given Sunday you'll find a great liturgy and...More

It is tradition on Good Friday, for many people to climb 85 steps leading up to the Immaculata Church while praying the rosary. The church is beautiful as well as the view from the top! On Good Friday though, the traffic and lines are crazy...More

The church is old and beautiful in its own way. The sights of the city from up on the hill outstanding.

Over a 100 year old tradition, the Catholic faithful, pray the Rosary every Good Friday, neat Lenten experience ending in the church at the top of the steps. Beautiful church
