Perched upon a grassy hill in a quiet neighborhood on the northeast side of Cedar Rapids, Mt. Mercy University is the home of a small grotto that sits adjacent to the Catholic liberal arts college.

This humble grotto at the foot of the campus serves as a spiritual respite, offering students, faculty and visitors a place to pause, rest and reflect.

Take a tour of one of Cedar Rapids' "best kept little secrets" and enjoy the beauty, charm and simple majesty of the Grotto.
