Come early, great views, doesn't take long to see.

We came up about 9am and found parking close. It didn't take long before traffic started backing up and parking attendants started directing traffic. It's not very big, but has a great view. The elevated walkway is neat, and there is a small gift shop inside downstairs. No bathrooms inside, there are porta-potties in the parking area, so go to... More

This chapel was a wonderful surprise. There was quite a lot of people so it was hard to take a photo without strangers in the background. However, people were polite. Once in the chapel, I could feel the soothing peacefulness. This is a must see when in Sedona!

The setting of the church nestled against the red rocks is truly stunning and worth a visit. Unfortunately, as it is for much of Sedona, the neighborhood creep has encroached on the foothills and much of the pristine land is dotted with development. Parking is also very tight and it was backed up with traffic when we visited.

The view from the chapel is lovely. Take time to sit and pray in this space. Also loved the variety and quality of the items in the gift shop.

There are designated parking areas and helpful volunteers direct you to available spaces. There are stunning views inside and out and there is a cute gift shop downstairs.

This is not very far off the main road and well worth a visit. Nothing special inside the chapel but it is impressive from the road way and there are also some fabulous houses in the immediate vicinity. Parking can be hard to find during spring break but otherwise you can probably find it close by. We often just stop... More

The Chapel of the Holy Cross is beautiful. If you go to Sedona you must drive to it and see it up close. It has striking architecture yet it integrates well into the surrounding red rocks.

Even with the crowd this was definitely a place to visit in Sedona. Only a short drive from town maybe 15 minutes from memory, it wasn't much of an effort really. We arrived close to 5PM so take note - the place closes at 5 and no access allowed (via the security gate in the valley below) until 9am or... More

Chapel of the Holy Cross is an amazing man made structure built into a rock formation - you can get some great pictures while driving up to it. There was a line of cars waiting to park near the Chapel and I would say we waited about 15 minutes before we were allowed to park and go into the Chapel.... More

Just found out while on vacation I'd "lost" a friend back home. Lit a candle and said a prayer - a fitting a way to say good-bye when there's no alternative. Serene setting. Disliked? There are parking attendants to organize visitors, but it was a slower process than necessary because they don't actually get up a look - just use... More
