Designed by Lloyd Wright, the son of Frank Lloyd Wright, and sits on a cliff with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island and north towards the Santa Monica Mountains. The Chapel is made of glass and rock, designed to blend into the flora and fauna of their beautiful gardens. The drive to get there, from either Hawthorne... More

If one drives through Palos Verde, making a stop here and communing with your inner peace, your Supreme Being, or just with Nature, is a must. The guest house gives extensive information of the Swedborgian religion, the exquisite little chapel is a frequent site of weddings, and the Carillion rings its bells on the quarter hour. Of course, the views... More

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.
