One of the prettiest places I've ever been. You can see a great view of Sedona from up there. If you enjoy a little exercise, park below and walk up. Otherwise you can get closer to the entrance, but there is still a little bit of a walk. Go in the morning, it's less crowded. The gift shop is great.... More

The gift that was given for all of us to enjoy for generations makes a person feel humble. The site of the Chapel of the Holy Cross stands looking over the the valley below and in the forefront of towering red rock. Parking is limited at this location,

Breathtaking it is worth the walk up hill a bit to get a great view. The chapel is small and intimate

We visited the chapel in late Feb (2015). It is literally built right into the beautiful red rocks surrounding Sedona. It is amazing to see how the engineers were able to tuck the chap into the rocks. The chapel, now under the care of the Roman Catholic Church, is open to all who wish to visit. No services are held... More

This is a nice place to visit once, just to see it and say you've been there, but not some place I'd ever go to over and over. I'm not Catholic so maybe I can't appreciate it as much. I take family to see it when they visit, but it's not my favorite place to go to in Sedona.

I wasn't planning to stop here, but I'm so glad I did. I was tired and didn't think I could walk one more step. The ramp up into the church was much easier to navigate than it looks, and it was well worth it. This gem, built into the rocks, offers another source of the serenity that encompasses the whole...

The walk to the chapel is like a gradual climb, although it seems easy it can be somewhat challenging for some. Every time we visit Sedona this place is always included in our itinerary. It is very solemn and inspiring just to sit inside the chapel. The view is also breathtaking from the east and west side of the chapel.

Park at the bottom and walk up if you can, otherwise you will have wait in line for a parking spot. Either way, it is worth the hike/wait. The Chapel itself and the property are a wonder. They fit into the landscape beautifully. And step inside and take a seat and reflect on life, light a candle, take in the... More

this building is worth a visit because it is built into the rock face of a cliff. It is quite small and there are many tourists so it is not exactly a place for quiet meditation .
