What are some great Catholic sites to visit on summer vacation?

According to a survey by Forbes.com, an estimated 20 million pilgrims visit the shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City every year. And though this is the most popular site, it certainly isn’t the only one. Watch this video and take a virtual tour to and through some other famous Catholic sites around the world.


Today’s homework assignment: Make a list of unique Catholic sites to visit this summer. Start with your own neighborhood. Is there a parish or shrine nearby for you to explore? Add ideas from our video. Does your local museum have a gallery that features religious art? You might also find some interesting ideas at RoadsideAmerica.com. Use the comments section below to tell us what's going on your sight seeing to-do list!

    My husband and I visited San Antonio a few summers ago. The Missions are beautiful!

    My summer school homework: I am going to see the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, San Juan de los Lagos Churh and St. Anthony de Padua Church in San Antonio, TX. Although I have lived here for decades, I have never been to these shrines. Then, if I have time, I will revisit the historic Catholic Missions here.
