There’s A Shrine Hidden In Maryland And You’ll Want To Visit
Hello, Marylanders. We love featuring little known spots around the Old Line State that are worth seeking out. Previously, we highlighted
a shrine in Emmitsburg, and today, we think there’s another one in the state that deserves your attention. Whether you attend for an event or simply explore the grounds, this place is sure to inspire.
The Shrine of St. Anthony is located on on a whopping 310 acres, hidden in Ellicott City.
According to the website, the shrine offers a unique opportunity to "come away and rest awhile."
The grounds are expansive, with several smaller shrines, statues, gardens, and more.
Whether you're local or make a pilgrimage here, this place is sure to inspire. When you find a particularly breathtaking spot, feel free to rest, pray, or meditate.
There are also woodland areas with hiking trails. What an enchanting way to connect with Mother Nature.
While this place is open year-round, it's particularly beautiful during spring and summer. Plants flourish among the paths, surrounding you in a fairy tale setting.
Also in the warmer months, many events and celebrations take place outdoors. Take a look at the
event calendar to stay up to date.
We've showed you the gorgeous grounds, but what about the massive shrine building? This impressive structure was built in the early 1930s and is just as beautiful today as it was long ago.
Don't forget to see the details up close, including the perfectly manicured courtyard.
Whether you visit The Shrine of St. Anthony for indoor services, hiking, meditating, or outdoor events, you're sure to love it. The chapel and grounds are open to the public daily from 9am until 5pm.
Take a look at the below video for even more stunning views of the shrine.
