A seemingly open-air chapel in the midst of a forest, Thorncrown Chapel is actually made of organic materials yet glass-enclosed and air-conditioned. The chapel is considered to be a significant influence in the field of architecture. The structure was designed so that each ray of light and change of weather makes the building appear different at every moment. Voluntary donations are accepted.

This stunningly simple and simply stunning chapel is a must-visit when you are in the area. There is no admission fee, though donations are gratefully accepted. The beauty of the surrounding woods..... more »
A very sacred and special place. The chapel looks like it's was grown rather than built. You feel you are outside in the woods rather than in a air conditioned environment. Be prepared to spend some time in meditation. I would hesitate bringing young children since it is a very quiet place. Most people are silent or whisper. Not to be missed.
All I can say is, "Wow!" This church is like nothing I've seen before, pure beauty! Never seen a structure like this fully made of glass. I love how it's situated in the middle of the forest, only accessible by a short, walking path. Mind blowing and worth the stop!
