Clearwater, Florida: Virgin Mary in the Glass (Gone)

Clearwater, FL- US Highway 19 just north of Drew street on the east side. Across from the Target. From Tampa, take the Courtney Campbell Causeway (60) till it turns into Gulf-to-Bay. Make a right on US 19. It's just passed the stop light on your right (be careful, you have to merge one lane over to continue straight).
Not much to see since it was vandalized.

Virgin Mary in the Glass

There is a building that supposedly has the image of the Virgin Mary stained onto the glass. The building used to be a bank, and now it has been turned into a shrine. You can buy religious candles across the street at Target, and they have chairs set up. It is free, but there are donation boxes, and I believe a gift shop.
