Not so great. Better from road below. Hiked to it. Driving and parking would not have been pleasant. Natural beauty of area tops it

Originally the Chapel was to have been built in Budapest but WWII brought the plans to a halt. Completed in 1956 is a marvel of building directly into the Sedona Buttes.
