Visitor Tips and News About Holy Land USA
Those curious about what Holy Land was like in its prime should check out the excellent 1970 film, WANDA. In one sequence, the title character visits Holy Land and takes a tour of the Catacombs. There are shots of the gruesome tableaux featuring "blood"-spattered mannequins![John, 07/30/2015]
Holy Land USA
They are working on the Holy Land USA site in Waterbury, and have replaced the old cross with a gorgeous cross that they can change the colors on to coincide with the church calendar. We were there in January. It still has no trespassing signs, but we were told if we aren't carrying spray paint cans we could go in.[Connie S., 02/13/2015]
