Lovely spot next to so many other iconic landmarks and good eating places! The Chapel won't take long to see, but is beautiful and worth the visit while checking out the Cathedral of Learning!

We attended a wedding at Heinz Chapel last weekend. It was a beautiful place for a wedding. I understand that you must be a Pitt grad to get married there.

Brought in a school choir here for a concert where they were the stars. Beautiful chapel in a very beautiful setting. I would definitely recommend a visit. Plenty of other historic places to see right nearby.
