A great place to walk and look at the many statues. The peacefulness is special for reflecting and meditating. In June for the feast of St. Anthony the celebration draws large crowds for entertainment and delicious Italian food and treats.

This is a moving spiritual, breathing, relaxing, inviting, memorable, enchanting site where you can spend sometime visiting some or all your favorite saints. I've often taken a few moments to pray here and get away from the normal rigorous, challenging days of life.

Such a peaceful place right off a main street. Certainly invites prayer, meditation and reflection. Easy access and parking as well.

Very peaceful and nice to sit and think. It is used for wedding shots and has a nice variety of things to look at. There is nothing to do but walk around and look. No consessions nor facilities.

My parents used to take me here as a child to see the shrines and church. Nice place to take pictures, or to get out of the house for a while.
