My Aunt and Uncle got married here years ago. It was magical then and now. To think it was built out overlooking the point and the logistics of it are kind of mind boggling. It is a very special place. We are lucky it is still sdtanding.

Drove through Palos Verdes from Redondo Beach, very scenic trip to the Glass Church. Church was designed by one of Frank Wright's sons. The tour is self guided and donations are accepted. The small church is surrounded by Redwood Trees and gardens. The ocean views are outstanding. Very peaceful.

I attended a wedding here at Wayfarers Chapel in December 2015 for a good friend of mine. It had to be one of the most GORGEOUS weddings that I have ever been to. This chapel is located in Ranchos Palos Verdes right on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The views are absolutely stunning and if you spend a good... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit in the area. One can bring a book and enjoy the amazing view from the garden areas. Also to hear the Church bells ring as one soaks up divinity is amazing. A must see if you are in the area...steps to a quiet soulful moment :-)

Amazing history of this most beautiful piece of architecture that sits atop a bluff over looking the pacific ocean. Frank Lloyd Wright and Lloyd Wright (architectural geniuses) crafted lovingly this glass church where weddings abound. The grounds are lovely to meander through if you are looking for a peaceful and or meditative time. The church itself is all glass and... More

As we continued down the beautiful Palos Verdes drive, our second stop was the Wayfarers chapel. This church was a beautifully located on a hillside overlooking Abalone Cove. That in itself was enough to make this an amazing attraction. However as you walk into a lush isolated forest, you see a glass structure that is amazing and beautiful. It appears... More
