You don't need to be religious to take inspiration from the beauty of the location. We visited on a gloriously warm, sunny day in May, perfect !

The drive up from Juneau is very nice along the coast. The "shrine" area is very peaceful and beautifully located. Nice to visit if you have some spare time and are interested in the history and legacy of St. Therese

About 30 mins north of Juneau, this place was a tranquil, albeit windy oasis. So peaceful, it really facilitated a reflective space to just enjoy the beauty of nature in that region. The chapel, and all of the ground, reflect St. Therese pretty well. Simple,...More

The Shrine of St. Therese is a MUST while visiting Juneau! Whether you're religious, or not, The Shrine and garden on the property is a beautiful view.

Being winter, the church was closed, and I had the place to myself, so I parked and walked out to the point. They have an easy to follow trail for the Stations, and the views over the water to the mountains are just amazing. Even...More

For the setting alone, this place is worth a visit. In the woods, quiet. no crowds, a beautiful church next to the water.

This is a beautiful location to visit on a trip “out the road” from Juneau. A small chapel on a spit of land, built on a rise overlooking the water. There is a path around the chapel in the woods demarking the stations of the...More

A quiet, peaceful shrine/stone chapel after walking an isthmus trail to its spot among old spruce trees; steep rocky shore surrounds this serene setting, and in summer humpback whales are often in the area. Sea lions venture here year round, and spectacular views of the...More

Just outside of Juneau. This is a very relaxing beautiful spot. I wish we could have spent more time here. The view is spectacular.

Any time is a good time. Open 08:30 - 08:00 during summer. It is about 22 miles from downtown Juneau. There is no bus service out there. Taxi from downtown probably $50-55 (one way). Might be cheaper to charter a car or... More
