In honor of the new Tim Burton movie "Alice in Wonderland," USA Today listed "10 great places to go through the looking glass." Cullman's own Ave Maria Grotto at St. Bernard Abbey made the list.
Notes the story:
"This beautifully landscaped park is the setting for 125 miniature reproductions of some of the world's most historic buildings and shrines, created from cold-cream jars, glass fragments, shells, tiles, stones, marbles and concrete," (Janet Friedman, founder of eccentricamerica.com) says. " Joseph Zoettl, a Benedictine monk, worked for three decades on his creations, using postcards for inspiration."
