We went on a hot late June. Free parking was crowded but there were parking attendants directing you to open spots. There was short walk up to Chapel which had great views all around of the red rock mountains. There was a small gift shop inside the chapel downstairs. Driving back down, we stopped at lower area to take photo... More

We went several times to enjoy the light at different times of the day. I went to the Taize service on Monday at 5:00pm, this is a must experience.

I'd heard about this before our trip and we are so glad we came- it is a steep climb to get into it, but it is a breathtaking place to find a church. While small inside, it is an amazingly peaceful place to be. Whoever can complain about visiting this must just not be able to appreciate how astounding a... More

It is a upward hike to the Chapel, but they do offer handicapped assistance VIA a golf Cart for those who may need it. Interesting place. But not a WOW Factor

The church is built into the rocks high up overlooking the surrounding area. The church is of a modern type and has a huge window behind the alter with commanding views of the red rocks. Either side of the alter there are shelves of red candles flickering for lost loved ones. There is a gift shop in the basement which... More

We visited here but to be honest were a little underwhelmed by it all. It is a grotesque building on one of the local red rocks and having had it described as a beautiful church built within the rocks the only conclusion we came to was how on earth planning permission was ever granted for this building. No wish to... More

Architectural feat with the help of Frank Llyod Wright. Easy to get to. Golf cart service to take you to the top and down to the parking lot which only has a limited amount of spaces. Very tiny landmark but gets very crowded.

View from here is beautiful. You will be able to see Courthouse , Bell Rock, Castle Rock, and Cathedral Rock. The ugly large house painted red was built by the person who invented the laysik surgery equipment. He has an observatory on the house. You will get a good look from up on top.

but it was somewhat nice. Too many people to enjoy the chapel. Run in and run out is about all you can do, It is free.

We were stopping at all the tourist stops, hiking and looking around. When we arrived at the church we were impressed. It is interesting the way it is built into the rock. Then when we came outside, the wind was howling and almost blew us away. It was great. Sadly there is a huge house that has been built below... More
