Beautiful Spanish Colonial Architecture

Description

This stunning chapel was constructed in 1928 and donated by Mrs. William Henry Brophy to the students of Brophy College Preparatory School. Spanish Colonial style exudes from the plush interior and muted yet elegant brick and cement exterior. The centerpiece of the main building is the tufa stone altar, which shines with a pinkish-colored hue and was quarried and carved by local artisans. If you look closely around the building, you'll notice that sea shells are used throughout the design, which is another unique style feature of Spanish Colonial architecture. Another notable feature of the chapel is its bank of stained glass windows, which were designed by artists from Dublin, Ireland, and depict the 11 articles of the Apostles' Creed.
