Should be on the check list of every LA visitor. It's truly a slice of LA history. Somebody should write a book on this place. Parking can be a problem.

This place is amazing! The chapels are each unique and beautiful. The grounds are so well kept. Lovely stain glass windows. Hear they have the largest collection of stain glass windows in the world. Also, the largest painting. Incredible statues too so worth the visit!
