Immaculata Church as a beautiful view of the city just outside the front doors. It is also home to the Mt Adams Steps and the Good Friday tradition of "praying the steps." Would definitely recommend that everyone does it at least once.

We walked around the grounds and along the rail of this church. What tremendous views of the city below, including the winding Ohio River, riverboats and all! Parking is probably ordinarily difficult - but we were there on a quiet Monday evening in April and found several on-street spaces open. I see why magazines and blogs list Immaculata as having...

Holy Cross - Immaculata Church is a peaceful, holy place. Even in the traditional climbing of the steps on Good Friday in the midst of a mod of other worshipers it's easy to find peace. On any given Sunday you'll find a great liturgy and a welcoming parish. Give it a try!

It is tradition on Good Friday, for many people to climb 85 steps leading up to the Immaculata Church while praying the rosary. The church is beautiful as well as the view from the top! On Good Friday though, the traffic and lines are crazy and it is very hard to find a parking spot unless you get there early.

I went to the Good Friday 'Stair Climb' in 2015 and was really impressed with this church. i talked with a couple priests, nuns, etc. and they were all so NICE and inspiring. I would like to go back to a Sunday mass some day. I imagine that parking might be an issue - after all, it is in Mount... More

The church is old and beautiful in its own way. The sights of the city from up on the hill outstanding.

Over a 100 year old tradition, the Catholic faithful, pray the Rosary every Good Friday, neat Lenten experience ending in the church at the top of the steps. Beautiful church

This is a most beautiful church, and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. There are numerous murals and statues, and wonderful stained glass. It is an historic church in historic Mt. Adams. The views of the city are awesme. You should also visit Eden Park while on your visit to Mt. Adams.

I have made a list of places that we show to every visitor to Cincinnati when we give a tour of this city. Visiting Immaculata is at the very top of our list. Not only does the view from the top of the stairs (especially on a sunny day) get the highest praises from our guests, but when we take... More

This is the church at the top of the prayer steps. Each Good Friday, I pray the steps up to Immaculata. Pretty little church in a historic neighborhood.
