Loretto Chapel - Review

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.

  • It's a neat place, and sure, stop by and see it. I understand about charging money and it's not like its an exorbitant amount, but if you have a family it gets a bit steep just to go inside only to find out it is super tiny. I took a nice photo or two and moved along. The gift shop is larger than the chapel, ha. I do have a massive complaint about the older gentleman working the ticket booth. He didn't smile and seemed put off by having to be there when we paid. Then the older group of ladies behind us were going in and one was forced to pull out her ID to prove she was a senior citizen. She assured him she was and laughed. Eventually she found an ID and gave it to him, and it was either not a state or country he was "familiar with" so he couldn't really validate that she indeed was a senior citizen. I think she ended up getting in, but all that was over giving her a $1 off the already inflated entry fee. Did it really matter that much to put off an entire group of people over something so dumb. Plus, it was wildly obvious that she was a senior citizen. I"d say skip this place, there are better places unless you are really hell bent on seeing the stairs.

  • This isn't a review of the Loretto Chapel. It's a review of the helical staircase. The staircase is beautifully designed and executed, clearly by a highly skilled master carpenter. His ingenuity and skill is all the more impressive since electricity, and therefore power tools were not invented when the staircase was built. This staircase is well worth the reasonable price of admission. I highly recommend it.

  • An absolutely stunning and amazing Church with all the Stations of the Cross and the amazing alter. When you go in it feels very sacred and spiritual. I absolutely would recommend it. Planning on doing a wedding there.

  • This is a beautiful museum, formerly a Catholic church run by the Sisters of Loretto. The architecture is not Spanish mission style but Gothic, copied from the church of Sainte Chapelle in Paris. The altar is beautiful and delicate. The main feature, however, is the free standing spiral staircase at the back of the chapel. It is an amazing piece of construction. Be prepared to maneuver around scores of tourists trying to get photos.

  • I was intrigued myself after hearing that there is a staircase inside the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico that is miraculous. Why is it miraculous? According to the chapel’s history, two mysteries surround the spiral stairs: the identity of its carpenter and the physics of its construction. No one know who built the magnificent structure. With two complete spirals and no visible support in the center or side, the staircase design still puzzles experts today. According to the website, the staircase was built without nails—only wooden pegs. Questions also surround the number of stair risers relative to the height of the choir loft and about the types of wood and other materials used in the stairway’s construction.
