The church enjoys a privileged position to make the most of spectacular vistas. A short drive from downtown, this is great place to relax for a while, and meditate on our Creator's handiwork. The back story of the chapel is also interesting, and the construction itself is fairly impressive, though perhaps not as much as the Thorncrown Chapel in NW... More

I went to Sedona, and was told to see it. It is a beautiful church, and has a beautiful view. It is amazing that the church was built between the rocks.

I guess I had high expectations after everyone gushed about the chapel. It was definitely interesting and unique, and I am glad we saw it...but it wasn't quite breath-taking.

One of the mosr beautiful churches due to how it integrates into and celebrates the incredible natural setting around it. For anyone who visits, it does truly give you a feeling that there is a greater being no matter what religion you may follow. Don't miss it!

the parking lot fills up quickly but it's worth waiting a few minutes for an open spot. The church is built next to the red rocks with awesome views. Church is small but it leaves a lasting impression. An architectural wonder in Sedona!

This church is a must see if you're in Sedona. I am not sure which view I prefer, the exterior or the interior.

We enjoyed our visit of the church. The view from the building was incredible. The parking lot was a bit of a steep walk, but they did have golf carts to help people arrive at the top or go back to their cars, if needed.

It's worth stopping in if you are driving by. Interesting chapel built into the rocks, but in an area of spectacular scenery, I wouldn't call this a must-see.

Beautiful place with great views. You can drive and park quite far up if you go during an off time - weekdays for example. Otherwise you have to park at the bottom of the hill and walk up. It's not bad - our 8 year olds managed just fine.
