I usually take out of town visitors to visit this chapel and the nearby Point Vicente Interpretive Center. Try to time your visit so that you can hear the bells chime. The visitors center explains the views of the Swedenborg religion. I have heard that to get married in the chapel you need to use a Swedenborg minister. I once... More

Although I consider myself an atheist, the chapel is stunning. More people would go to church if they all looked like this.

Such a unique spot...peaceful and restorative. Sadly not everyone respects the peace....people should teach their children respect and not ruin the experience for others.

My husband and I were considering this location for our wedding. But since we live on the ocean we decided to have it in our backyard. The views of the ocean are amazing at this location and it's small (150) and intimate. If you are looking for an ocean view, nice, quite location for your event. This is the place... More

I live in the area. A great drive for Spring and Summer Sundays. Nice to show out of town friends. Cozy for small weddings and it's so beautifully green inside. Wonderful views on the way. Can continue to do other stops along the road. Good for family, friends out of town or an afternoon for yourself to mellow

Very pretty coastal drive to get there. Views are amazing. Chapel is small, very serene. Have taken visitors from out of state here, really enjoyed taking pictures of the ocean views.

My family went there for a Christmas candlelight service. It was spiritual and magical. Very low key and beautiful. If you want a nice way to break your kids into thinking of the true meaning of Christmas (without the bells and whistles)- the true meaning of Christmas, go there. It was wonderful. And don't forget to look up at the... More

This glass church is beautiful and is guaranteed to take your breath away. The view of the ocean is stunning as well. This venue has been featured in so many movies and T.V. shows and I'm sure you will recognize it when you see it.
