Loretto Chapel (The)
Bishop Jean Lamy commissioned this Gothic Revival-style chapel. It was completed in the 1880s. The stained glass window was made in Paris, France, and delivered to Santa Fe in a covered wagon. The most outstanding feature of the chapel is the famous Miraculous Staircase. The circular staircase winds its way from the floor of the chapel to the choir loft above. The Loretto Chapel no longer belongs to the Catholic Church. It is a private museum and there is a gift shop on the premises.
It was an solemn experience. The story was extremely inspiring and the staircase kind of made my mouth drop open. Who would think that the staircase would just hang there without support. The Chapel was breathtaking. Would love to visit again in the future.
It was an experience of a lifetime, as soon as i walked in I felt peaceful and would highly recommend a visit to anyone who is in the area to check this out. I do not remember the cost to enter, but it was worth it, and the gift shop has nice gifts to take home and share.
Loretto chapel is beyond beautiful! My sister got married their in March 2009 and it an amazing church. I have never seen any other church this beautiful and the history of the magnificant staircase is wonderful.
I was not knowing what to expect when my husband and I first went in. Once we entered the Chapel area, there was a spiritual presence there, that just took your breath away. It was so neat to see the life of Jesus depicted throughout the Chapel area. Then to see the amazing staircase was just too much.
We cannot wait to go back.
Delightful story as to it's creation and stunning beauty of the creation. This is something that everyone to Santa Fe must see at least once while visiting. Can't say too much more about it or will give away it's intrigue!
Charming story of the sisters of Loretto found here. What an amazing staircase. We loved this stop on our tour of Santa Fe, NM. To think of the creativity and craftsmanship used years ago to build this beautiful staircase. I'm a real believer.
