Located on the site of the Wizard Academy, this is a beautiful place to check out in the hill country. I really like the gift shop too as it has ice cream, good quality root beer, and very interesting books. Take a stroll out to the chapel and ring the bell and take in the view.

Do yourself a favor and get married here, it was beautiful. We had about 50 people and it was everything we could have hoped. Do yourself another favor and use Bill Peary as your photographer, he kept us moving and made us feel special... he is a pro!

Tucked away in the hills outside of Austin is this pretty little chapel called Dulcinea. Yes, named for the Dulcinea of Cervantes. We attended a wedding at the chapel and it truly makes a great setting for an intimate wedding. I believe it is part of a larger event center with banquet halls for receptions. This wedding's reception was held... More

My neice was married here last weekend. I had seen photos on line, but the photos do not do it justice. The chapel itself and the overlook are stunning and a perfect place for a wedding ceremony. Look for the plaques at the three points at the railing, which includes Don Quixote describing his Dulcinea. Beautiful setting.

I coordinated a wedding out here early this year and it was gorgeous! It doesn't get much better than this beautiful place with stunning views if you're looking for a truly budget-friendly and intimate wedding location.

I stumbled across this venue on my hunt for a beautiful location for an intimate wedding. This location was perfect for my now husband & I. We both loved the scenic views and the history behind Chapel Dulcinea. Located in the Hill Country--but is advertised as in Austin (way South, Driftwood) we truly loved the romantic feel of this place.... More

Chapel was absolutely great. Parking was horrible, most horrible!! No organization can could be easily done as the different wedding parties arrive and depart.

This beautiful chapel on a hill is the most peaceful place I have been to in the state of Texas. If I lived in Austin, I would come here alone just to enjoy the serenity. I felt like I could see the entire city of Austin. My sister's wedding went absolutely perfectly and it was exactly as she had intended.... More

An absolutely beautiful place for a wedding nestled in the Hill Country. It sits on the grounds of the Wizard Academy which, itself, is a magical place with interesting architecture. It's located near Driftwood, a little bit far from Austin proper. But the view can be spectacular. The downside is there are no facilities for a reception.
