NotesIt was dedicated in 1899. The gardens, statues, marble altars and chapels are of great beauty. The Catacombs give the visitor an accurate idea of those in Rome. The Grotto of Bethlehem in reproduced, the Gethsemane Valley, the Tomb of the Blessed Virgin and many more shrine too numerous to mention.
