Get your camera set to Panorama because there are 300 degrees of incredible red rock views from this interesting Chapel. I know the design is supposed to be a wonderful architectural feat, but I wanted to see the view from the interior of the Chapel, not just the exterior. Maybe I am just too uncouth to recognize great design, but... More

It's amazing that anyone could have the vision to build a church in the side of a mountain. But that is indeed what they did and it's majestic. The steep walk up is well worth the views of the area. The church is simple yet divine.

This is a beautiful place where the chapel is built into the red rocks of Sedona. Two red rock formations seen from the chapel are call The Nuns and guard the valley and there is another formation that looks like Mary holding the Baby Jesus. The views of Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, and Cathedral Rock are beautiful, too. Don't miss... More

We enjoyed our visit very much. The grounds are well maintained. The view was marvelous. The parking lot might scare some people away; however, there was a vehicle to deliver people to the chapel if they needed assistance. The gift shop was stocked with high quality locally made items instead of cheap trinkets.

A 'must-see'! It's simply a gorgeous view with an even more beautiful church! Worth the wait, if you have to. There was a short line of cars when we got there, but it moved quickly. Bathrooms (port-a-potty) are only at the base of the mountain.

This church is nestled right into the red rock formations, so it almost appears as another natural formation in the countryside. It's an amazing sight, and makes you wonder at how it was able to be built so seamlessly into the beautiful countryside.

It is amazing how beautiful this was. It is very interesting on the background of the chapel and how it came to be. You can sit in the chapel and have some quite time, light a candle and there is even a small gift shop, The views are beautiful and it was not very busy when we first got there... More

Went up to see the chapel this morning, Saturday. Lots of cars going the same place with limited parking. Good thing they had people there to help you park. It can be a long walk up to the chapel, it's all up hill to the top. It is a National Historic Site with a view. There is a small chapel... More

This is a beautiful chapel with architecture well- worth seeing. But it's filled with rude and disrespectful tourists who chatter on about nothing inside a church where people are trying to reflect. Fortunately, you only need to allot less than an hour of your day for a visit. Parking is quite limited and its a pretty steep uphill walk from... More

Such an inspirational view. Don't miss this spot. It was so crowded when I went by I couldn't get inside, but worth the drive by.
