Chapel On The Rock, Allenspark Reviews
Omg! As I was driving through the Rockies, after seeing an elevating sign that read "elevation 14,xxx" (I was driving too fast to see the extra numbers) I thought to myself, " I feel next to heaven, shortly enough, I see this church, on a rock, in the middle of nowhere! I slammed on my brakes, made sure I had enough shoulder to pull over. I did have a truck driving close, so I did upset the driver by stopping abruptly (I'm sorry sir/ma'am, but I had to stop!). Omg! This church, the sight, is breathtaking! This site is historic, if you can, please visit it! ❤❤❤
A beautiful place to stop and visit. As with many Christian churches, they seem to welcome visitors of all faiths.
love the building. not so much the actual purpose of the building...
Beautiful church with amazing views around it, but it is a little dry during the winter.
Wonderful little church with an interesting history As the name says, this is a stone built church on a rock. The church is beautiful and excellently maintained. We stopped by on a week day and there was a wonderful lady there that gave us a nice history of the church, which was built in the 1930s. There were a couple of truly miraculous things that happened, including one related to Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II visited this wonderful little church for a short retreat. There is a picture in the church depicting the visit. It's a beautiful church to spend a little time for quiet reflection.
