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

The views are spectacular and the building is quite lovely. It is located along a scenic route that winds along the Ocean in Palos Verdes.... More
