St. Anthony’s Monastery Is A Pretty Place Of Worship In Maine
The Pine Tree State is bursting at the seams with rich, vibrant scenery and magnificent sights, both man-made and naturally sculpted. There’s no denying that our little Northeast haven is truly spectacular from every angle! But Maine’s incredible landscape doesn’t stop with the scenery – it’s also where art, architecture, history, and nature are often woven together in perfect harmony.
Some of Maine’s loveliest and most iconic places are its churches and chapels – hand-crafted by locals before America was even founded and picturesquely nestled into the diverse nooks and crannies of our state. But while many of our state’s churches embody the postcard-perfect New England style, one special place of worship – St. Anthony’s Franciscan Monastery in Kennebunkport – blends everything that makes Maine spectacular into one peaceful setting. It’s picturesque and perfect for getting away for some quiet contemplation!
