Capilla de la Paz (Chapel of Peace), Acapulco

4.7
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Guerrero
Admire the striking design and peaceful atmosphere of Capilla de la Paz (Chapel of Peace), a religious building occupying a scenic hillside position. Overlooking the city and framed by tall palms, the modern chapel takes a bold, pyramidal form, flanked on one side by a 39.6 m (130 ft) white cross and a sculpture of two hands intertwined, signifying brotherhood. The well-kept gardens in front of the nondenominational chapel's entrance offer a shady, comfortable place to take in the extensive views of the city and bay below.

  • Definitely worth a stop if you are visiting Acapulco. A sad story of why the chapel was built but beautifully done and great views from the chapel area of the city below.  more »

Where to stay in Acapulco

Acapulco offers accommodations catering to travelers at extreme ends of the financial scale. Pricey but luxurious beach resorts fringe the city's wineglass-curved bay and fan out to the surrounding coastline, while a dense block of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels dominates Acapulco Dorado. Among the ritzy options, you can find a wide range of inexpensive beach bungalows and hostels catering to younger, party-focused visitors. Stay a bit farther away from the center at the rocky outcrop of Las Playas to enjoy views over Acapulco's famous cliffs.
