The Grotto…Dickeyville, WI–

FullSizeRender IMG_3517Well, well, well. . .one of the main reasons that I love just toolin’ around various places on the planet is because you stumble upon stuff like this: The Grotto in Dickeyville, Wisconsin.

The Grotto of Dickeyville is a shrine built out of artifacts, religious relics, shells, broken porcelain, and general stuff.  The whole thing was built by one priest from 1920 to 1930.  That’s right, it took this guy ten years to build his homage to Christianity that all can come and enjoy at any time, and it appears that this place is well-visited.  Wisconsin has a huge Catholic population who all offer support and donations to keep The Grotto in good repair.  The Grotto gets 40,000 to 60,000 visitors every year according to the Grotto Wikipedia page. . .most wonderful that folks can come visit, contribute funds, and feel blessed by doing so. . .mmmm, aaaahh!

So, if you ever find yourself winding along the roads in the rolling hills of Wisconsin, be sure to stop in Dickeyville and visit The Grotto. . .you can’t miss it with the big sign on the side of the road and the large shrine just a few feet away.  I send you magical vibes from The Grotto in Dickeyville. . .feel them. . .they are good for your adventurous spirit.
