Chapel Dulcinea is the famous FREE open-air Wedding Chapel that sits daringly on the edge of an ancient walking trail approximately 20 minutes southwest of downtown Austin.
Hand-chiseled stone benches provide seating for 12. Capacity under the roof can accommodate about 50 guests. Another 100 would be able to view standing in the extended patio area. So . . . we can host up to 150, but please know that Dulcinea is a small chapel.
We're open 7 days a week and you're welcome to visit between 8AM to 8PM. Be sure to register at the Welcome Center immediately upon arrival to see if a wedding is in progress. We had over 1000 weddings last year so it's important to check the calendar to see when weddings are scheduled.
Feeling Overwhelmed? Too many Choices? Keep It Sweet & Simple!
Yes , it's an outdoor chapel and the weather isn't always perfect. But life is like that, isn't it? Anything can happen.
Walk into your marriage with open eyes, ready for whatever might come your way, even on your wedding day.
It's a powerful way to begin a powerful partnership and yes . . . it really is FREE.
Relax - you've already found perfect the partner and now you've found the perfect place.

So romantic and beautiful even in the freezing cold wind and rain. Great value! Very helpful and nice staff. It's small, but we easily fit 60 people. Everything was perfect.

This is one of the most beautiful settings in Austin. Easy to schedule and work with the location was perfect for our small, informal wedding. Highly recommended!!!!
Chapel Dulcinea is a gorgeous Chapel nestled in the Hill Country. I have married hundreds of couples at this location and each couple has commented on how it's more beautiful in person than it is on their website. The staff is professional, helpful and courteous and you can't find a better bang for your buck than Chapel Dulcinea!
What a beautiful venue and such a unique concept of a FREE venue! Such amazing history on-site and great staff!
Amazing venue with spectacular views. It was extremely romantic and as a photographer a dream place to shoot. Staff was courteous and helpful.
