Never seen anything so architecturally stunning as an all glass church, held by metal supports and wood beams. Grounds of the Church are sooooooo beautifully manicured and the view of the ocean is just a "pinch myself" moment. This is the epitome of the beauty of California. Very much worth visiting, ample parking, a visitor center, easy access to the... More

A charming wonderful little diversion by the ocean. It was well worth the few minutes it took to get to it. And it's totally free. Recommend visiting on a sunny day. It will definitely make you think about the venue you want to get married at.

We were a guest attending a friend's wedding. Outside of the church looked very modest, but inside is absolutely breath-taking. The architecture is just amazing inside. It was very expensive short visit at the Wayfarers Chapel. Wish we could of spend more time and explore the garden area.

The open beam and glass structure blends so well with the setting that it feels that you are outside. The artfully placed Christmas decorations just added a touch of color. The views are magnificent and even when there are a lot of people there, it is restful.

Amazing glass church with ocean views. I'm a little biased, my daughter was married here 5 years ago. What a view! Highly recommended for a visit!

Wafarers Chapel is one of those unique treasures that you stumble upon. It is not an attraction that one would travel continents to see, but it is absolutely magnificent and well worth a drive. The Church walls are made of glass, giving a transparent appearance, merging the building to the surrounding foliage. At dusk, the lighting from inside the Church... More

We visited the Glass Church/Wayfarers Church on a Sunday. It was the first Sunday of the Christmas season so the advent wreath was in the window. There is nice trees and a stunningly beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean from the area. There is also a fountain. Its a peaceful place to go. Its a wonderful place to also worship.... More

I recommend the Wayfarers Chapel to everyone traveling to LA. The structure and grounds are perfectly integrated with the scenery. It's just beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful place. Super easy access from the highway with plenty of free parking. Great ocean views. Small, well kept, beautiful garden an unexpected bonus. The chapel itself is very beautiful. Be aware that if a wedding is going on you will not be allowed in the chapel. Sort of luck of the draw. But the grounds are beautiful any... More
