A must see if you are in Sedona Arizona. Breathtaking colors and 360 panoramic view is beautiful. If you have a disabled person in the vehicle there is parking at the top so no need to walk up.

Neat architecture and gift shop. Limited parking and you have to climb a hill. Beautiful views of Sedona from church. The inside of the church is small but pretty. You would spend 30 min there at the most.

Im not a religious person by any means, but this church is a beautiful place to come and say a silent prayer and appreciate the beauty that it is surrounded by. Ive been to Sedona multiple times, and I always stop here. This trip I came during the week and got to see the little gift shop in the basement.... More

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix runs this site. Although they don't use it for church services anymore, you can still visit to pray and to light candles. There is a small gift shop in the lower level. It is nice by itself but the views of the rock formations make it extra special!

No matter what your religious preference may be, there is no way to avoid being inspired by a trip to this chapel. Perched in the midst of a red rock mountain, it is an architectural marvel as well as offering spectacular views of the area south of Sedona. We have visited it 3 times and each time there is something... More

This is a great church on the hill with a fabulous view. If you are famiar with Frank Lloyd Wright's work this will look familiar to you because the architect was a student of his. The did a nice job blending the church into the side of the mountain where it becomes part of the beauty versus detracting from.

Truly inspiring. You must take time to read the story of the building of this beautiful church. It is amazing what 1 woman can accomplish when she is dedicated to a single idea. This was my second visiit, the first being in the late 1960's, before it was surrounded by houses. I must say I enjoyed it much more the... More

This is a plain chapel, that is by no means plain. And, a perfect spot to stop and reflect. Its a quiet moment during the day, to appreciate the surrounding beauty. The first time I visited this place was in the very early 70's, as a child. At that time there were no housing developments in the area, and certainly... More
