One of our favorite places to visit is the National Shrine. Not only is it a beautiful Basilica, but also such a peaceful and inviting place. If you get the chance, not matter what your religion is, it's a place to see.

Beautiful church and great acoustics for listening to a great concert band. No congregation, church is for tourists to Orlando who want to attend mass on Saturday or Sunday. My understanding is that they are getting a new, large pipe organ in 2019. Can't wait...More

From I-4 WB it’s the first Disney exit. Left at the bottom of exit ramp & first left onto Vineland. You’ll go by Bahama Breeze and the street narrows to one lane. Shrine will be on your right before you reach outlet mall.
