great place to admire God's creation
Jul 2021
This is a catholic church that is rightly overrun with tourists. From afar its appearance is inspirational. Worth a viewing from the main road, but maybe not up close.

Beautiful mountain Chapel
Sep 2021 • Friends
A small Catholic Chapel on a mountainside in Sedona. Stunning views from inside our outside around the Chapel.
Very respectful and peaceful in the Chapel with a large statue of Christ on a cross.
Candles are available to light and there is space to sit and reflect.
There is also a gift shop underneath accessed via a stairwell to the left after you enter the Chapel. Lots of souvenirs are available to all who wish to purchase them.
Amazing sight to see. It doesn't have to take long but do take time to sit and reflect for a while in the Chapel.

A prayer and a view
Aug 2021
The exterior architecture of this chapel is a bit austere although it doesn't clash too badly with the red rocks, but the inside is very pretty. There's a crucifix against a window with an expansive view, along with a small shrine. The basement has a nice gift shop as well.

It can be a bit crowded as it is not a large space so if you are worried about distancing you may need to be cautious.

There are still prayers and services in the chapel so it is not just a tourist attraction. There are also many great views outside into the canyon.

Unique church nestled into the rich red rocks of the Sedona area
Aug 2021
A very unique church built into the rocks. Be sure to read the history of this church and it's benefactor. Well traveled, so you'll see lots of other folks as you visit. It sits in a very 'nice' neighborhood yet has some beautiful views from the 'cross side' of the church. Stop below on the street and look back up at the church. Really neat. Book store in the basement has some really interesting stuff along with a history of the church. I understand that this is one of the Vortexes that are located in this area.

Cool chapel built into the rocks
Sep 2021
Neat chapel built into the rock. Very small but interesting. I hiked Cathedral Rock and then drove over to the chapel for a quick stop. Closes at 5pm. I arrived about 330pm on a Thursday and there was parking. I just hopped out, walked up the hill, saw the chapel, looked at the views and was on my way. Views aren't spectacular if you hike some of the other trails. But if you're not a hiker, I can see why some say the views are great. There wasn't a ton of parking so I can see how it might get busy during high season.

Beautiful and peaceful!

I love visiting churches during my vacation. The church is not only a beautiful place with stunning views but it is extremely peaceful and welcoming. It is also an architectural beauty and absolutely worth visiting. The staff is very friendly.

impressive view
Sep 2021
This is a 'working chapel' so it's important to keep voices low. On the drive up to the chapel there are many different parking lots; keep going, especially if someone in your group has mobility issues.

Nice chapel
Sep 2021 • Couples
Worth the agony of trying to park for it. It is a bit busy. So you might have to hike up a rather steep road to reach the chapel. There is handicapped parking at the top. It is worth it.
