Cincinnati Off The Beaten Path: 51 reviews and 99 photos
Located on the pinnacle of Mt. Adams, lies the Holy Cross Immaculata Church where the Catholic faithful return every Good Friday to pray the beads of the rosary on the steep steps leading up to the church.
My last visit there I counted 85 steps - that's a lot of rosary beads!! :D
The altarpieces on the inside of the church was painted by Johann Schmitt, who was an art teacher to one of Cincinnati's illustrious artists, Frank Duveneck (click "I accept these terms" to view his famous The Whistling Boy), who I mentioned in my Maisonette review. Here's a list of 7 of the altarpieces by Schmitt (with photos):
Birth of the Virgin Mary
The Sacrifice of Isaac
Expulsion from the Garden of Eden
Assumption of the Virgin Mary
Presentation of the Virgin Mary at the Temple
Besides it's focal point in Cincinnati for Good Friday devotions, the church is also beautiful architecturally & is a wonderful place to view the sunrise & sunset over Cincinnati & to see the lights of the city twinkling & sparkling at night.
