Fodor's Expert Review Madonna Queen National Shrine

South Boston Religious Building/Site/Shrine
Free
A 40-ish-foot golden and green statue of the Virgin Mary standing atop a globe dominates the Pope Paul VI Pilgrim Plaza that welcomes curious visitors and religious pilgrims to this Roman Catholic shrine that Cardinal Medeiros dedicated in 1978. From its perch in Orient Heights, the shrine also boasts some pretty spectacular views of Logan Airport and the downtown skyline. Beneath the plaza, a sprawling sanctuary offers a quiet retreat and some holy relics are on display. Holy masses offered in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, weekly.
