Beautiful place for peace and quiet. The grounds are fabulous as are the views. The building was done by Lloyd Wright and worth the view. You feel so cradled by the trees overhead that can be seen through the roof. We went for the renewal service on New Year's Day and it was special. You write up your resolutions and... More

We were in the area again on a Sunday so went to the Glass Church/Wayfarer Chapel. This is one of my favorite chapels with its beautiful glass architecture. The views of the Pacific Ocean are also stunningly amazing.

This is a great place to stop and take in breath-taking Palos Verdes Vistas. The chapel is rather a small church made of mostly glass and wood and is nestled into the beautiful trees. You feel one with nature. A great place to stop and reflect and take a moment for yourself.

My significant other of twenty years and I were married here in November after falling in love with the serenity and overall architecture. A 6pm wedding we were able to take in the beauty of the late afternoon sun for pictures, begin the wedding as the sun began to set and finish the event up in darkness with the chapel... More

Worth a visit!! Breathtaking view and the church is perfect. I didn't go inside coz there's a baptism ceremony going on but still it's worth the visit.
