  • Address: Chimayo, New Mexico, USA, USA
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.

Practical Info

Chimayo is roughly 25 miles north of Santa Fe. The church is open October-April from 9am-5pm, and May-September from 9am-6pm. There is Mass Monday-Saturday at 11am and on Sundays at 10:30am and noon.
