    Felt like stepping out of a time machine in 18th century Europe. Founded in the late 1800′s, it was designed to include replicas of the many shrines you would find in the Holy Land. Do the Catacombs! Read more

    It's been almost 15 years since visiting the real sites in the Holy Land. This great little place evoked those memories. Nice replicas and great photos and artwork on display.

    Make sure to visit in the spring when the roses are in full bloom. It's gorgeous and it smells so very good!
