The Lengendary Shrine El Santuario de Chimayó is quiet now after a Good Friday pilgrimage of thousands who walked or drove or managed to get to this adobe church located in the village of Chimayo in northern New Mexico during this Easter week. People of all faiths who believe in the legend come here for the opportunity to rub the sacred reddish dirt on their body for healing and spiritual renewal. The dirt is free. The miracles happen as witnessed by the walking sticks, canes and crutches left behind. It is truly a special place where many say the heart and soul of northern New Mexico lives, thrives and inspires.
You must visit this place someday.
