Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe

This is a view of the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The stairway on the left was made without any nails and is considered a "miracle.

A masterpiece—and mystery—of woodworking, this spiral structure is entirely self-supporting, without any central column to provide stability and with wooden pegs instead of nails. Legend has it that when the chapel was finished in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft except by ladder due to space issues. An unknown carpenter came into town and built this miraculous staircase only to disappear without pay.
