This is one of the most beautiful chapels I have ever seen. The entire structure is encased in glass, which makes you feel as if you were still outside, even though you are inside the chapel. The landscaping is also wonderful. Large trees surround the...More

The church was tinier than I expected in spite of it being called a chapel. When inside the views were mostly upwards and actually felt a little claustrophobic to me. I think some of the trees actually were too overgrown and took away from the...More

We are not member of the congregation, but live near-by and recently had our son baptized here. Absolutely stunning even when it isn't a clear day.

Specatular setting into which Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr, placed a glass chapel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Worth the trip somewhat out of the way on the Palos Verdes Penisula.

One of the most beautiful churches in all of the United States! Beautifully designed by Frank Loyd Wright Jr, the views are amazing with huge glass windows and large mature trees!

Breathing beauty inside the chapel as well as the amazing ocean view. My husband and I were married there on 10/18/1970. The simplicity of the chapel appealed to us both and our bouquets 💐 were the only additional flowers allowed because the all glass structure...More

IF there is not a wedding taking place, you can go inside the chapel and experience its beauty, first-hand. If you can't get in, just enjoy the beautiful, peaceful gardens and fountain, and the scenic beauty of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Just soak it in....More
