Although a classic example of Spanish Colonial architecture (thick adobe walls, two bell towers and a six-foot crucifix), the small catholic church of El Santuario de Chimaya is probably best known for its supposedly curative powers of “holy dirt” found in its sacristy.
The National Historic Landmark, located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Chimayo, has been called the “Lourdes of America”, attracting 300,000 pilgrims annually hoping to take home some of the miracle dirt.
We went home empty handed the day of our visit; a mass was being celebrated at the time of our arrival.
Follow the High Road to Taos Scenic Byway from Santa Fe to see this site and numerous other authentic historic landmarks.

Many visitors to the church take a small amount of the I visited the Sanctuary during Holy Week, unbeknownst to me, over 30,000 people make pilgrimage to this church. The tradition is to walk to the church and I saw many people along the highway and roads heading towards the church. Very interesting place indeed. It has a peaceful yet majestic feel with beautiful desert valley views.
