Chapel of the Holy Cross

The most interesting thing about this Chapel is that it is built into the mountain in a strikingly beautiful way. Very small, but visually impressive none-the-less, the chapel is a nice example of harmony between man and nature. The interior is very soothing with candles, an altar, and a few other religious symbols and statues. I felt a strong Catholic influence, but would not call it a totally traditional motif. It definitely had an "other earthly" feel to it and I would not have been surprised to see monks in long black robes conducting some kind of service.

If you have 15-20 minutes to spare, this is a nice thing to see. You can park right next to the chapel. The hours are 9 to 5 and there is a small gift shop. The weather wasn’t very nice when we were there so it wasn’t very crowded. Judging by the size of the parking lot, it probably gets a fair number of visitors.
