  • The El Santuario de Chimayo is a beautiful church located along the High Road from Taos to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The church has a long history, the sanctuary very beautiful, and this should be visited...  more »
  • Take time! Do not simply rush though the church and holy sites and gift shop. Take a deep breath and walk slowly and embrace the holiness that infuses the area.  more »

  • I have been coming here all my life. This has been a pilgrimage site for my family for 200 years. You don't have to be a believer to be moved by the setting and the amazing energy that surrounds you. At the nearby store buy the most delicious ground dry red chili!!! I promise you will be glad you did.
  • We went on Sunday and we're just in time for Sunday mass. Priest even gave us a blessing with holy water before the service . We came in search of that "miracle soil that heals" . It isn't proven but as the priest said , it very well can be your faith that heals you . There is gift shops on the premises , with very fair pricing on all types of religious articles including candles , rosaries , holy water bottles and little containers for you to take some "miracle soil" . We had a blessed wonderful time here . I'm sure you will enjoy your day and visit here !
  • What a wonderful place. I did not come here so much as a spiritual visit but one out of general curiosity. I only saw two other people who were visiting and it's a great place to pray for whatever your needs are.
  • Not only cause I was born here.I love this Chimay┼Ĺ.place .its the most beautiful places in world. We are so blessed to be naivety from here from el Santuario De Chimay├│.
  • Very interesting to witness those walking the highways carrying crosses and paying tribute to their faith. Mighty fine, All love
