The Chapel of Peace was part of our day tour with Sebastian Hernandez Ricardo, and it didn't disappoint. The property is very well maintained. The story behind the architect and building of the structure is incredible. The cross can be seen from most places in Acapulco, that's how big it is, and the views here are AH-MAZING!!!

This is an interesting place to visit high up on the mountain overlooking Acapulco Bay. Make sure to get them to tell you the history of how it was built and visit under the church. Great views of the Bay.

This chapel is 1250 above sea level. It overlooks the harbor, it's amazing views. The most impressive feature of the chapel is the 12 story cross! The chapel is located in the famous Las Brisas area of Acapulco.

We visited the Chapel of Peace on a city tour with Roberto Alarcon (please check him out and take his tour-you will not regret it!) and it was wonderful to visit a place with so much history. Not to mention you get amazing views of Acapulco, with many picture worthy spots!

We stopped here on a private tour! Lots of Photo Ops of and around the chapel. Lots of History and an amazing view! The grounds were well maintained! It was an easy walk for us but there was a bit of a hill and steps.

The grounds were beautiful as were the views. Our tour guide, Roberto gave us a wonderful and informative tour. There was a photo shoot for a Quinceiera happening.

This architecturally modern chapel is where two doctor friends of mine who live and work in Acapulco were married. It is a beautiful building with some of the best views there are of Acapulco harbor and the mountains that ascend from it. If you want to experience some of the most breath taking views that acapulco has to offer, this... More

The Chapel of Peace was very beautiful and peaceful. My husband and son and daughter toured the chapel. I could not make the walk due to my disability. The view is fantastic. We were the only Americans there. Many Mexicans vacation in Acapulco. It is the highest point in Acapulco. It was nice and my family enjoyed it.
