  • You will never experience anything like this place. It is more than spiritual, it's a architectural wonder in a setting beyond reason in a jaw dropping location. Your trip to Colorado isn't complete.....  more

  • What a beautiful and sacred place! In such a beautiful setting with Longs Peak in the background. The caretaker gentleman (not a priest, but should be!) was so nice and knowledgeable. There are pictures of the Pope's visit here!!! Kneel down, say some prayers, and dip some Holy Water.
  • Cool place to stop along highway 7s scenic drive. This free attraction gives you an opportunity to see architecture to the time period, made of Stone. The acoustics in the building are quite unique and resonate well. As a visitor begin to sing you can hear the reverb fill the air. A video has been posted in the photos section. Good photo ops here.
  • The chapel is beautiful with some very interesting history. The caretaker staff are friendly and willing to answer questions. We really enjoyed doing the Stations of the Cross hike through the beautiful wooded area behind the chapel. Overall this is a great place to stop and stretch your legs.
  • Only 7 miles from Estes Park, I highly recommend a ride to the Chapel. It is a don’t miss. This small church is literally built on top of a rock out cropping. Small but beautiful inside and out. After you visit pull up the history of the church and it’s amazing survival from fire, flood, mud slides in the last decade. Really cool.
  • Such a lovely building and spot to stop for a bit. The scenic vista speaks for itself in the photos. We have been here in all seasons and continue to drop by just to see its oft-changing face.
