Wife and I stopped by today since today is St Anne's and St Joachim's feast day. Just a beautiful shrine. Even if you are not catholic you would enjoy beauty of the grounds. When in Sturbridge this is a place not to miss and enjoy.

Thank you, Trip Advisor. St. Anne's Shrine is beautiful in its simplicity. Met some very nice locals that shared some wonderful history.

Large garden and well-kept grounds. Interesting statues and sculptures, numerous spots to pause and meditate. Tucked away from the city road so quiet and peaceful. A nice and close by detour off the highway if you have time. Note: some slope and stairs.

I've been here many times. I especially like the summer services in the pavilion. Always warm and welcoming.

A very pleasant place to walk around and reflect. The weather was perfect and the flowers/gardens were wonderful. It was quiet and serene. The gift shop had many unique items that were appropriately priced. Peaceful.
