This a great place to get a birds eye-view of the city of Acapulco at ver little cost. When touring with your guide, make sure he/she brings you to visit this chapel. Great opportunity for photo shoots.

Chapel of Peace had amazing views of Acapulco. We stopped here as part of our city tour. Very interesting history.

there is a great view from this attraction, and a nice story to go with it as well if you have a good guide.

What a beautiful place. A must see. Have Roberto Alacaron take you on a city tour. He speaks fluent English and knows a lot about his city.

Beautiful monument. Touching family story behind it. Loved the onyx windows and the ironwood seating. Great view of Acapulco Bay. Nice grounds overall, especially from a horticultural perspective.

These things aren't really my thing. But the views from up there are fantastic. There is a little bit of a walk to get up here but it's not to bad.

The chapel itself was pleasant but unremarkable; the architect was important, and it looks kind of like a pineapple, but inside it is basically a lot of concrete. The grounds are pretty and well maintained. The cross is iconic, and it is kind of interesting to see up close. Our tour guide told us it is about the same height... More

I was blown away with this stop. To hear the history of this chapel and surrounding area made the visit that much more enjoyable. I was also fascinated with the homes surrounding the chapel. This is a must see, when you visit Acapulco.

The view from the top itself is a spiritual experience. The story behind the church is moving. Talk about paying it forward!
