“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

This chapel is stunning! The staircase is a masterpiece. It only takes a couple minutes to go in and check it out and it is worth it. I like the trees with the rosaries hanging on the branches too. It is worth the price.

“Beautiful stair case”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Although there is a small charge to enter ($3), this chapel is worth a stop. The staircase inside is so beautiful and stories about it make it come alive. Sit down in the chapel and listen to the English taped story about the site.

“Wowed by a staircase”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Best $3 private museum that you will visit. Really nice chapel. The staircase is fantastic. It lives up to the hype and doesn't take all day to see! Great short trip while visiting Santa Fe.

“Breath taking stained glass and architecture!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Our visit to the Loretto Chapel took our breath away! The Chapel's stained glass windows and spiral staircase are an awesome sight to see. Definitely make plans to see the Loretto Chapel next time you travel to Santa Fe.
