As the light changes, the mesmerizing rocks change color, and you can see why it's one of the most beautiful places in America.

Welcome to Red Rock Country!

Sedona, Arizona, is known for its beautiful landscape and its spiritual renewal. So it's no wonder that sitting among the cliffs is the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

This architectural landmark was built in 1956 and commissioned by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a friend of Frank Lloyd Wright's son.

The unique feature is the giant cross that looks like it's been wedged into the rocks, almost as if the chapel was built around it.

Denominations from around the world visit to offer their prayers, and many believe they can feel the spiritual energy as it sits right in the center of Sedona's so-called vortexes.

As you marvel at the chapel's unique, contemporary design, you can't help but stare at the gorgeous panoramic views. It really is something else.
