This monastery is an odd one. Its founders, in the late nineteenth century, set out to create a Holy Land in America, and commissioned the construction of replicas of overseas holy sites, including the Roman Catacombs, The Grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes, the Grotto of the Nativity, and other assorted reproductions of sites in Jerusalem, Rome, etc. And the grounds beyond those copies are beautiful as well.
