El Santuario de Chimayó

El Santuario de Chimayó is a religious shrine located in Chimayó, New Mexico. This sanctuary has a number of cures alleged to happen miraculously here with he healing dirt, and is a setting for a religious pilgrimage each year on Good Friday. It is a quite beautiful and restful site, well worth the 50 mile drive north of Santa Fe. This is on the High Road to Taos, the setting for the traditional New Mexican Hispanic culture.
It has a very spiritual sense to it. Except during pilgrimages, it is usually very quiet.


  1. It looks beautiful and a charming place to visit.

  2. We visited it about 15 years ago. It is one of those must see sights in New Mexico, which is also something to see in general.

  3. It looks to be a very peaceful and lovely place. And the holy dirt is certainly much more worth paying attention to than the political dirt being slung every day during the election season.
