This is the most beautiful chapel in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. I make sure whenever I have guests that they visit this chapel and it is just down the road from a spot to watch the whales from the cliff top.

Whenever we have friends or family visit we make it a point to stop at wayfarers chapel. The view is incredible, the well thought out gardens (a planting representing each state) and the design that Wright created showcases the trees in the main window. It is a stop that should not be missed. AND if you are lucky enough to... More

Nice place for a quick walk and beautiful views. Great location to highlight the peninsula. Pick up the paper that explains all about the architecture.

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.
