Fantastic place to visit! The story of the creation of the staircase is wonderful! The altar is beautiful as well and the courtyard has many cool vendors.

Great story of the nuns and the results of their novena. Gorgeous chapel with the amazing circular staircase. It is a quick stop but worth the visit.

This is a very old church and small, but amazing inside. They do charge $3.00 to for admission, but well worth it. You can sit and take it all in. So much to just look at and think about. Of course the staircase is present...More

An inauspicious Gothic exterior with a marvellous spiral staircase. The inside is significantly more interesting than the outside. Very large gift shop . Church no longer in use but can be hired for weddings.

We enjoyed visiting this church and its incredible staircase. The architecture and "mystery" of the staircase is amazing to behold. The interior of the church is also very beautiful.

At $3 per adult it was worth going inside to view the miraculous staircase. Kids are free and our 4 & 5 year old didn't care one bit so that was nice. The pamphlet was nice to have for reference.

Do they allow the guests to climb the stairs to the choir loft? Or just pose of the stairs for photos? Do they allow the guests to take photos inside the chapel?

I think every movie has fiction and fact. The fun part of seeing the staircase at Laretto Chapel is that no one is quite sure of all the facts and never will be.
