The best views are facing the west side when coming from the parking lot across the street on the south side. From here you get some beautiful pictures of the Chapel and surroundings. On a calm day the Chapel reflects in the green of the...More

Beautiful... You cannot just pass and don't stop there. Tip: leave the car at the first park, that take a walk along side the lake. Good pace, it's possible to do the all walk in 1 hour.Enjoy!!!
