We had heard so much about the miracle of the staircase we put this on our list of must see. They are quite amazing but be sure to pick up a post card showing the staircase prior to the railing being added. Nice narrative given but you must get very close to the speakers - if there are folks talking it is a bit difficult to hear.

Enjoyed the inspirational staircase and the story behind it. Found some nice things in the gift shop.

The spiral staircase is truly amazing and worth seeing. The recording gives good information about the staircase but is somewhat distracting if you just want to sit and appreciate the Chapel.

a little touristy as you must walk through the gift store, but worth a couple of minutes to see the beautiful chapel and of course the " heavenly" staircase.

This is a must for all visitors. Not only the famous "hanging stairway" but the architecture of thhe entire church will carry you into a mystical past. A tiny church filled with emotion.
