- Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine's official name is now Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe. This Roman Catholic Church is located in Orlando and was just an idea in the 1970s, but became a reality in the '80s and '90s. Originally built to accommodate the tens of millions of Catholics coming to the area on vacations, the church offers a place for travelers to worship or attend Mass among magnificent statues, sculpted entryways and adorned walls. On the church's property you will also find beautiful gardens, a museum and a gift shop. -Diane Dilov-Schultheis
