7) Chapel of the Holy Cross – Sedona, Arizona

Built over a half-century ago, this must-see attraction is one of Sedona’s earliest landmarks and continues to draw visitors in awe of its wonder. The unique design of this all-denominational chapel has a surreal effect upon viewing and entering it. The most prominent feature is the cross which was originally built by a devout pilgrim. It seems to be wedged into the red rocks that surround it 200 feet above ground level. The chapel was later constructed around the cross, which is now the front feature of the awesome structure. Inside, visitors can sit along the periphery on benches that hug the angled walls. In the center are pew benches for prayer, meditation or just to take a rest. Visitors often remark how uplifted they feel. The surrounding Mystic Hills are filled with ancient animal faces, such as Eagle Rock, as well as sacred imagery.
