While we were in Mukwonago with my family, we took my 9-year old great-grandson, Angel, to Holy Hill Basilica and National Shrine, a very well-known place in Wisconsin and among Catholics. I remember hearing about the church and the view from the tower, but was probably too young to remember if I did see it. I’m glad we went because the architecture of the church itself is amazing and beautiful everywhere you look, and the views of the countryside are quite lovely, too.

Or take a virtual tour of the upper church.
