  • There’s not a tour or anything, but the story behind the chapel is compelling. We only stayed about 15 minutes to walk around a bit, but some people were listening to a audio explanation.

  • It's got a little parking lay-by, which, if you are lucky, will be free, and it is well worth taking a stop here. Lovely to see and lots of benches dotted around.

  • the view is nice
  • Stunning. If you're on route definitely worth stopping to view and read up about. Car park is small on the opposite side of the road. Switchbacks on this road are tight, we managed in a campervan
