Built in the mid 1800s, the Loretto Chapel has been featured on television shows such as Unsolved Mysteries. The Loretto Chapel is best known for its “miraculous” choir-loft staircase. According to legend, a carpenter who appeared mysteriously built the stairs without nails or visible support. The man left without taking money or leaving his name. In my opinion, the chapel is not very attractive from the outside, but it is beautiful on the inside. I felt a very special presence there that I can’t put into words. There is also a large gift shop with religious items. There is a small admission charge.
