The Chapel of the Holy Cross: A Beacon of Faith

From a distance, the imposing structure of a chapel perched atop one of the Sedona mesas captured our attention. Like many visitors, this captivating landmark became our first stop. Despite the presence of fellow travelers, the atmosphere remained surprisingly uncrowded. 

Completed in 1956, the Chapel of the Holy Cross, draws inspiration from the iconic Empire State Building. Inside, a towering cross dominates the space. Standing at its foot, gazing upwards, creates a powerful visual connection, as the figure of Jesus appears to look directly back at the beholder. Then, we lit candles and offered a silent prayer within this sacred space.
