A small well maintained old church but now privately owned. A very unique and unusual wood circular staircase called a miracle by many. Worth a visit but they exit you through a large gift shop. A little too much commercialism really.

My husband was on a mission to see the "Miraculous Staircase" It is beautiful and mysterious. The whole Chapel is beautiful and the staircase is its centerpiece. It brought us to Santa Fe a wonderful and mysterious place on its own. We would recommend a trip to Santa Fe and you can't pass up the Chaple.

You will find this a tiny Chapel. Cost $3.00 but well worth it. You will be amazed by the stair case inside and the story behind it. I would tell you but I think you need to read it for yourself.

This has a spiral staircase on the inside that has no nails or screws connecting it. There are statues of the crucifixion that are just amazing. Beautiful place to visit.

Charming and beautiful chapel with a most ineresting tale of the construction of the winding stairs to the second level of the chapel.Reminscent of the elaborate European Catholic cathedrals on a very small scale.

The loretto chapel is a privately owned chapel. A continuous loop audio broadcast in the chapel gives you a history of the chapel. Of special interest is the story of the mysterious stairway. There is a small entrance fee

Awe inspiring. The spiral staircase is incredible. Take the time to sit in a pew and observe the stain glass and wood sculptures.

Beautiful chapel with a great story behind the staircase. Audio lasts 10-15 minutes. Of our five family members, I was the only one really interested, so I toured it by myself. It was well worth the $3 admission.

We had heard about the chapel and seen TV reports on it, but nothing prepared us for how awe inspiring it is. It is a beautiful sacred space. Well worth seeing in person.
