We liked everything about the Chapel, the history, the different points of interest. Some of the chapel needs repair, so it didn't have much of a wow factor, but it's such a part of Acapulco history that we were very glad we went to see it.

The view from the church is amazing - you can see the entire Acapulco Bay. There is something about the cross that is spellbinding. The inside of the church is awesome too. The seating area is made out of wood even though it looks like stone.

Church is built in the top of a hill, so the views over the fantastic Santa Lucia Bay also called Acapulco bay are certainly breath taking. If you are catholic it is good going to church to attend mass in both English and Spanish and the tour around the área... They have a nice gift shop

A unique family history makes it even more special. The only place in Acapulco that you can go without being reaped off .

I'm always interested in architecture and history, as well as culture. The visit to the Chapel was definitely and intriguing experience, it also helps to understand the background story of how it came to be. My Tour guide was amazing and fully aware of its past and how it came to be of fruition. As I sat inside, I was... More

Beautiful views, statue and gigantic cross. Part of the Acapulco Highlight tour taken with Sabastian Hernandez. The views are worth the visit. Attended Mass on Sunday. It has a small gift shop. Church was built by a Frenchman to honor his two son that were killed in a plane crash. They are buried there.

Wonderful tribute to the family members who died in a plane crash now shared with the community. Many steps to the top and I could not climb the steps. My friend did make it to the top and he said it was worth the effort.
