Built in the early 19th century, this shrine is home to a miraculous crucifix.
The adobe church was built in 1813 and the dirt of the chapel floor is said to have healing powers. You will find discarded crutches, dog tags and handwritten testimonials at the site. On Good Friday, devout Catholics from around the state make pilgrimages to the church, jamming the roadways.
At the gift shop, visitors can purchase candles, Holy Dirt and Holy Water containers, as well as items for baptisms, communions, confirmations and weddings. Take some time to look around the village of Chimayo, which is known for its excellent wool weavings and rugs.
