This place is lovely with a sweet little gift shop in the basement for religious items primarily. The views are just stunning, be prepared for an uphill walk and only port potties at the base.

There is parking at many different levels. There is also a small shuttle that takes people from the lower parking lot to the top lot. There is a fairly short hike up to the chapel. But great views from the top.

This is off 179 and is well labeled. Make sure you check for hours before you go. You can drive up almost to the Chapel. There is an up-ramp (I didn't see any elevators) that may be challenging for a few. This is a real chapel/house of worship. There is an interesting history as to how this Chapel came to... More

This was our first stop when we arrived in Sedona. The walk up to the Chapel has the most amazing red rock formations. The view from the top is beautiful.

Too bad all the land under it has been developed. Would have been cool to see years ago! Still neat place to stop.

While this is a lovely, modern chapel situated beautifully above Sedona, it is "famous" for being associated with Frank Lloyd Wright. But the closest it gets to that is an association with FLW's son, Lloyd Wright, who worked with the patron of the chapel on plans for a somewhat similar design in Budapest. Still, the little chapel is worth a... More

Beautiful chapel built overlooking Sedona on the side if a cliff. Really nice photo opportunity of the countryside. The area closes to both vehicles and foot traffic at 6 PM.

What a beautiful spot in Sedona. The architecture is amazing and the views are great. Parking is a challenge so if you can, park below the chapel and walk up from the lower parking lot. They seemed to have a golf cart shuttle if needed. People don't stay that long at the chapel so spaces in the upper parking lot... More
