|About these ratings|
If you only have time for one cultural site, the Chapel of the Holy Cross should be it. This stunning church — designed by sculptor Marguerite Brunswig Staude (a student of architect Frank Lloyd Wright) in the 1950s — protrudes from the red cliffs less than 4 miles south of Sedona's "Y" intersection. The main stained glass window is held together by a giant cross and overlooks the Verde Valley.
While many recent visitors rave about the spectacular views, most say the site's peaceful atmosphere is the central reason to go.
The Chapel of the Holy Cross is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a Taize Prayer Service every Monday at 5 p.m. Admission is free, and parking is available just a short walk down the cliff side from the church.
