Loved the history of the place! The architecture and the scenery were phenomenal. Great opportunity for beautiful pictures and history iOS the Chapel itself.

But not worth going multiple times! It's historic, with good views, but not all that exciting after a single visit.

Interesting history with an unrivaled view of the bay. Large cross visible from across the city. Well maintained and quiet.
