“Tranquil Treasure”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Your trip to Southern California has probably been busy and you've been in a lot of bustle and noise. Now you've gotten to a scenic drive on cliffs above the Pacific and you come upon this small lovely chapel set in So Cal vegetation, open to all. Since I lived close by for 20 years I've been there with visitors many times and sometimes by myself as part of a leisurely drive.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

It is a beautiful church. Lot of places to take pictures. The church itself is small but still beautiful. You can take pictures of the beach from the church and they look beautiful. Parking is ok. The shop does not have much stuff.

“Beautiful spot, delightful Sunday service”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Service is held at 10am on Sundays. It's ecumenical in the Judeo-Christian tradition. I did not sense much emphasis on Swedenborgian philosophy. People were very nice, lots of families with kids and plenty of older people as well. Sit on the right if you don't want to get roasted by the sun. It was one of the highlights of my LA trip!

“Just a beautiful spot”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Worth a stop on the drive thru Palos Verdes. Went to see it to preview for our daughters wedding. This is a very popular place because it is so beautiful and has a great view. Designed by Lloyd Wright it is very picturesque and the structure is very unique. Really looking forward to the wedding there.
