“beautiful place for a wedding”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

This chapel is on beautiful grounds and has an old world feel on the inside. they had us in an out for the wedding without feeling like we were rushed (yet there was a wedding before and a wedding after)/ There is very little parking however so prepare ahead for where you will park.

“A Worthwhile Visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Heinz Memorial Chapel is located in Oakland across from the Cathedral of Learning, another must-see. The Chapel is known for it's beautiful stained glass windows, which are certainly worth viewing. It's a peaceful place to stop by and a very popular spot for weddings.

“Beautiful stained glass windows”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I'm not real big on visiting churches but this is very special. The stained glass windows are fantastic. The windows have a story so be sure to get a tour to explain.

“Tall stained glass windows”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a moderately sized Gothic cathedral featuring very tall stained glass windows.

It's well worth a half hour when visiting the Univ. of Pittsburgh.

“Best on a sunny day. The stained glass windows are incredible!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Took my niece and her boyfriend to see the chapel and we were all impressed. The stained glass windows are beautiful and each one tells a story.
