About The Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe

The Loretto Chapel was completed in 1878 and has a rather fascinating story as a part of its history.

After its construction, people realized there was no way to access the loft. Many carpenters were called and all of them suggested the use of a ladder which would not sync well with the church’s small interiors.

A stranger soon came to the church and built the elegant spiral staircase and left without taking any pay. Advertisements were sent out to find who the man was but was not found. Since then the staircase is the highlight of the place.

The Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe Reviews - Write a Review

  • The Loretto Chapel is such an awe inspiring and beautiful chapel. The staircase is amazing to witness, but we found that the whole church was designed so beautifully and would be wonderful to see on it's own. Truly an awesome site to visit.

  • Saw this amazing place for the first time in 1976 and many more times since then. The wonder & beauty always remains the same.

  • Amazing to be able to see a miracle of God (whether you believe it or not). As well, this pretty low cost of a place is pretty nice. Obviously, the staircase is the specialty, but it's still a nice place for prayer. The gift shop for sure had many good merchandise to buy as well as your casual Christian goods!

  • Beautiful Chapel and the staircase is awe inspiring ! the overall "commercialization" of this place is a bit too much though. There was no brochures for free (you had to buy them in the gift shop AFTER you see the stairs???). Also, there was no way to UNDERSTAND the audio speakers (telling you about the stairs / chapel) while in the church. It was low volume and echoed badly, so thankfully, I did a LOT of reading before I got there and explained to my kids how the stairs came to be. The gift shop was nice and a LOT of stuff to buy !!
