Visited the chapel and the views surrounding it are breathtaking. A must to visit if you are in the vicinity. Pictures do not justify what you will see- you have to see it to believe it. The chapel is so cute!

We decided to come and look at this after reading of its history and were really pleased we did. There is parking nearby and it is lovely to see this little chapel which survived an earthquake historically. Lovely views all around as well.

I visited here as it was a potential location for my wedding. The views were very nice. Only downfall is that the ground is a little unstable so those with wheelchairs may find it hard to get to the end.
