  • Small church in the small forest. You don't have to spend a lot of time here but it is a beautiful little church primarily all made of glass. Certainly worth a stop, but unless you want to sit and wat...  more »

  • Beautiful and serene. I once attended a wedding at this chapel during sunset. It was beautiful. Totally worth the drive to Palos Verde's Peninsula to discover this gem.
  • Beautiful Chapel. All of the walls are glass so you have a beautiful view of the ocean. It gets a bit hot in the summer but it's worth it.
  • Its very pretty. No idea what it costs to get married here though and groups are given a strict 2 hour window for ceremony and pictures. Lots of people come here just to walk around though and see the sights, makes taking pictures a pain.
  • Gorgeous chapel in Palos Verdes! Easy parking right off the highway. Walk around the grounds or the chapel (except when in use for a ceremony). Spectacular views of the coast. Must see if ever out this way.
  • So far I've only seen the Wayfarers Chapel in a movie, and on an episode of Revenge, but what I've seen of it between the movie and the TV, as well as the virtual tour I not only want to go there for a visit, but I want to have my wedding there (which is no small expense, but someone has offered to foot the bill since my father is no longer with us). Just looking at the pictures of it makes me think of a peaceful refuge from everyday life as well as other problems.
