Beautiful, peaceful place to visit along with some history. I'm not Catholic but I appreciate the religious history and peaceful setting that this place provided.

Nestled in the hillside off Hwy 94, this is a beautiful shrine depicting the last hours of Christ's life in the outdoor Stations of the Cross. Rich with history, the church/chapel offers a peaceful retreat and opportunity for prayer. Have not yet been able to make it to the pilgrimages but have heard they are wonderful.

I took my senior group (over 50 years old) to Hermann, MO on May 13 & May 14, 2014. On May 14 we went to Rhineland, MO which is only a few minutes from Hermann to the Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows. The Catholic church is now considered a museum. It is breath taking. The outside and the inside... More

I am not even sure how we first heard about this shrine, but it was a highlight on our trip to Hermann. We visited both the Church of St. Martin, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and also the shrine and the grounds. We were there for over an hour, making our holy hour with the Blessed... More

What a surprise. We love discovering the unique tributes to religion. No written discription will do justice to this beautiful countryside location. It is thought provoking, and memorable. The grotto's are interesting. I would recommend stopping.

Small shrine to Our Lady of the Sorrows with the original shrine, outdoor grottos to Lourdes, the Holy Family, and Mt Olive, as well as outdoor stations. About 3 miles from the Katy Trail near Rhineland MO (mile marker 105 on the Katy Trail) Absolutely peaceful. On a hill with beautiful vistas of the hills around the Missouri River.
