“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We're Frank Lloyd Wright fans so went out of our way to get the Sunday services at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church as guests. The church is in an open space in an urban setting so it is easy to get a full view from the outside. It's a different FLW experience than his more prairie architecture--more like the ASU performance center. We wanted to see the inside but they don't offer tours--though they welcome people to services. Church members were very accepting of our attendance. They do tend to dress up for services tho so we may have fit in better with casual wear (skirt, jacket, long sleeve shirt). The inside of the church is lovely and well cared for--beautiful stained glass that fit in nicely along the upper walls.

“A Must See if you are into Archetecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Firstly, you need to read the other reviews with caution. The church is not 'round' but cruciform in shape if viewed from above. And the Greek Festival was moved off site years ago. However, this masterpiece, finished after Frank Lloyd Wright's death, is stunning. If you can get a tour inside, you will not be disappointed, the building is truly unique. But it is very worth your time to drive by, or into the parking lot, to see it from the outside. Of course it is a functioning Orthodox Church, so be respectful of that.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

This church is one of a kind. You won't see a church like this in a lot of places. Very famous designer...completely round and beautiful windows. It's nice to check out. They have a great greek festival during the summer...they now offer fish fry on fridays. Definitely look them up and see all the events they have.

“Frank Lloyd Wright classic church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

If you are interested in seeing a Wright classic church, take a tour. It is brief, but worth taking a look at if you like his style of architecture.
