Built for the Sisters of Loretto, it is famous for its spiral staircase, which has no central support. Although it was built on a much smaller scale, the chapel bears a resemblance to the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris. When the Loretto Chapel was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft. Legend says that the Sisters of the Chapel made a novena to St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters, who came and built the stairs.
