THE ALLEGHENIES Sunken Gardens History Dates Back To 1919
Take a stroll though the Allegheny Mountains Sunken Gardens of Mt. Assisi and see the shrine of Our Lady Of Fatima, walk through the Ten Stations Of The Cross, enjoy the cascade waterfalls.
From the moment you read the prayer plague that welcomes you into the garden your family will feel an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility. With each step you will discover an abundance of beauty that couldn't possibly be captured in a picture.
The Sunken Gardens are nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania. The small historic community of Loretto was founded in 1799, as a Catholic Colony, by Father Demetrius Augustine Gallitzin. He was a former Russian Prince, who denounced his wealth to serve The Catholic Church.
