About The Grotto

Grotto
Giftshop
Visitor Complex

With its fir trees, colorful rhododendrons and other native plants, The Grotto is an inviting destination for all. An internationally-renowned Catholic shrine and botanical garden, The Grotto provides a spiritual and peaceful retreat for more than 200,000 visitors each year from all faiths and all walks of life.  Visitors are delighted to discover this 62-acre green space just minutes from downtown Portland. 

The heart of the shrine is Our Lady’s Grotto, a rock cave carved into the base of a 110-foot cliff.  A life-size marble replica of Michelangelo’s Pietà is featured in its center.

The Grotto’s Chapel of Mary, Gift Shop, Conference Center and Visitor Complex are located on the plaza level with Our Lady’s Grotto. On The Grotto’s upper level, visitors can enjoy the manicured gardens, religious artwork, and beautiful panoramic views of the Columbia River Valley, the Cascades and Mt. St. Helens.  Also on the upper level are the cliff-side Meditation Chapel and the Servite Monastery.

In addition to its beautiful gardens, The Grotto offers comfort, support, and healing through The Grotto Counseling Center and The Grotto Spirituality Program.

The Grotto Conference Center provides a serene setting for business meetings, community workshops, or religious retreats.
