We had been told the make sure we visited this Chapel to see the Miraculous Staircase. The admission was $3 a person, which wasn't bad. The staircase is really all there was to look at, in such a small chapel. We were in and out within 10 minutes. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to see what the fuss was... More

I love the view of the staircase I have been in the chapel a few times and it never looses its touch for me. There is no doubt in my mind that the story behind the chapel is false because just how beautiful and sculpted the stair case actually is.

The chapel is very old and quaint, quite small. The stained glass and the hanging staircase were a must see in Santa Fe.

When you walk on the inside of the chapel you feel a sense of peace & serenity. It only cost $3 to enter & you will be done in about 10 minutes, but it is well worth it.

Loved the charm of this place. So beautiful and easy to get around the hotel and chapel. I think it was 6 dollars per person for the tour. Loved the stained glass windows. There is a shop to purchase souvenirs.

This little chapel is worth a quick visit -- we were lucky to see it decorated for Christtmas. It was interesting to see some photos of brides and bridal parties on the steps. What a pretty place for a wedding.

This is a must see place on your visit to Santa Fe. There is a $3 admission fee, worth it to help preserve this historic Chapel. The story of the "miracle staircase" is very interesting. The interior of the chapel is quite pretty. Unfortunately we were there on a cloudy day so we did not have an opportunity to enjoy... More

We stumbled onto this chapel and decided to go in even through it was getting ready to close for the day. The admission price on the day we visited was $3 per person. The most interesting thing about this chapel is the spiral staircase. The alter is also quite beautiful. From what I understand, this chapel is used primarily as... More
