This is a fairly new church and cost a horrendous amount to build as its coated in titanium. Inside it has amenities including a coffee shop and a warm welcome will be made. Externally it is striking and worth a picture or two but does have a slope up to the entrance

Beautiful church you have to pay a small fee to enter, small inside but worth a visit whether you have religious beliefs or not

I usually despise modern churches, but this one is a real gem! Its architecture, while very modern, is nice and elegant and its interiors, with the vivid lighting is in stark contrast to the dark days in Alta during winter. We had the luck of visiting during the rehearsals of some organ music. It was fascinating. Should not miss it... More

This church has a really unusual design. I have to say looks beautiful with all the snow around it. :)

Relaxing, clean and interesting this church has history and in this neck of the woods its a very pleasing place to spend for the tranquillity, the town of Alta is a special place and this church just seems to just sum up the location.

Thank Bioeddie
