Chimayo is a small town near Santa Fe that is perhaps best-known for a 19th-century chapel that has become something of a pilgrimage site.

El Santuario de Chimayo is on the Potrero Plaza in the town of Chimayo. It's a Roman Catholic church and shrine, built in 1816 and dedicated to the Christ of Esquipulas, a place in Guatemala where the soil is said to have healing powers. There is a small part of the dirt floor in the Chimayo church from which pilgrims can take small amounts of soil.

Since 1929, El Santuario de Chimayo has been overseen by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, and is said to receive more than 300,000 visitors each year.

Exploring the Magic of Northern New Mexico: Scenery, Pueblos and Churches

Exploring the Magic of Northern New Mexico: Scenery, Pueblos and Churches

Our tour will take us north on the Camino Real, a road that connected Mexico's ancient cultures with the equally ancient cultures of the American Southwest. This Camino trail is a backdrop for countless Hollywood movies. The first stop will be at the Poeh Cultural Center in the native pueblo of Pojoaque, which translates to "water gathering place". We will visit the museum and see the hundreds of ancient pots returned to this pueblo from museums. Next we see the Nambe Pueblo and follow the trail of pilgrims to the village of Chimayo at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains Each year, more than 300,000 people of every culture visit the Santuario Shrine in hopes of miracle cures. The chapel for the Santo Niño de Atocha is on the grounds, receiving prayers for children. The famous New Mexico Red Chile served at the Rancho de Chimayó restaurant is where we will enjoy lunch. Returning to Santa Fe or Albuquerque, we see the Santa Fe Opera and it's amazing architecture.
