The Grotto Professional Review and Guide
"Only five minutes from Portland International Airport, this 62-acre Roman Catholic sanctuary, founded by the Servites, is a peaceful retreat from the bustle of modern life. Take a leisurely stroll through the woodsy plaza level, where vines and shrubs muffle the noise of nearby Sandy Boulevard, and admire the replica of Michelangelo’s Pieta` inside a rock grotto. An elevator lifts you to the top of a 110-foot cliff. At the top, you’ll find incredible views and beautifully manicured gardens. Mr. Butchart, known for the Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, donated plants from his gardens and helped with the layout of the grounds."
