Franciscan Monastery, Washington DC

Tucked in a quiet neighborhood in Washington DC is a Romanesque monastery. Completed in 1899, the Mount St. Sepulchre has 15 chapels and has grounds that were replicas of the Lourdes Grotto and various shrines of the Holy Land.








The Monastery gives a tour and let's you go down the underground area. Not a lot of visitors on the tour except some kids on a field trip.

One thing we learned driving on these quiet DC neighborhoods that it has a lot of traffic cameras. Somebody warned us that we already passed 2 cameras that would automatically send us a ticket. He was right, the tickets (two of them) came weeks later.
