Chapel of the Holy Cross is one of Sedona’s top tourists spots to visit. This Roman Catholic chapel was built right into the beautiful red rock of Sedona. Appearing to rise right out of the buttes, the towering cross gives an amazing view of the surrounding area. Built in 1956 by Marguerite Brunswig Staube, the chapel is intimate yet has a majestic view through the floor to ceiling windows.

Many come here for pictures, others for the view while some come to meditate and enjoy the atmosphere and view in the serene stillness of one of the benches. You will find that there are quite a few who visit this amazing place over and over again.

While there is not much to the chapel itself, it is an amazing place to visit and take in the surroundings. You will frequently see rock climbers all around climbing the beautiful red bluffs. Stop in the gift shop in the basement. They have some fantastic art by locals as well as rosaries to commemorate your visit.

It is a small walk from the parking lot to the chapel so bring your walking shoes. No need for hiking boots, there is a paved ramp and you can take your time. Note that there are no bathrooms on site but on the drive up to the chapel, there are a few ‘rest areas’ that you may stop off and use.
