Tour The Grotto

The Upper Level

Make the most of your group’s visit to The Grotto and schedule a tour. We offer a peaceful break for groups of many varieties and sizes ranging from sacred pilgrimages to casual tours.

Daytime tours of the grounds are offered year-round. Schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance, and a volunteer tour guide (if available) will be arranged to greet you, give your group a history of The Grotto and/or a personalized tour of the lower level and upper gardens. Minimum group size for tour guides is 10 visitors.

The Grotto offers a spectacular natural gallery in the woods, with more than 100 beautifully sculpted statues and shrines nestled among towering firs and flower-lined pathways. The dramatic cliffside, award-winning architecture, and spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains offer inspiration for all who visit this Sanctuary.

There is no admission charge to see the gardens and structures on the lower level of The Grotto. The lower level includes The Grotto (cave and plaza), Stations of the Cross, The Chapel of Mary, as well as our Welcome Center/Gift Shop and Visitor Complex.

As there are no walking paths to the upper gardens, to visit the upper level each visitor must purchase an elevator token. Tokens can be purchased at the Welcome Center or the Visitor Complex. Token prices are $5.00 for ages 13-54, ages 6-12 $3.00, and seniors 55 and over $4.00. Children under 6 are free.

The Grotto is fully accessible, and there are a limited number of wheelchairs available for use on a first-come, first-serve basis. The parking lot is located off Sandy Boulevard and NE 85th Avenue; there is ample parking with special stalls for tour buses.
