“Worth a visit when in the area...”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Unfamiliar with Cosanti but saw it on Tripadvisor so went. This is an amazing little workshop, giftshop and display of unique, beautiful brass and ceramic bells. We wandered around the fascinating compound, glanced into the workshop areas, listened and admired the intriguing bells.
Soleri's Cosanti is a great complement to a Taliesin West visit.

“A truly unique experience”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Cosanti is an oasis of buildings that arise from the earth, filled with artisan works-primarily bells-for sale. Paolo Soleri designed the compound, comprised of areas to display his creations, workspaces to manufacture the bells and living areas. Let the paths lead you through Soleri's concrete form shelters and provide a surprise around every turn. If you go, keep your eyes open for the dragon! Soleri studied with Frank Lloyd Wright, and you will surely recognize Soleri bells that grace many Wright homes. When I visited, it was the weekend and no work was being done. I would like to return on a weekday to see the actual production process. I love hearing the bell I brought home.
