The Santuario is located on a large compound that includes the main chapel, the Santo Nino de Atocha chapel, a picnic ground, and gift shops that raise money to maintain the facility. All the statues and decorations in the historic adobe building is made by local craftspeople. No photos are allowed inside, but you can buy postcards that show the... More

We were traveling with another couple who had selected El Santuario de Chimayo as a point of interest. Once on the grounds, we were impressed by the architecture and the beautiful outdoor places to pause,meditate and contemplate while experiencing calm and awe at the same time. I was unaware that this mission is a place pilgrims visit seeking divine healing.... More

The church is stunning both outside and in. The retablos are beautiful. The 10:30am mass felt like something from the past. It was breathtaking.

Here on a Sunday, mass is held @ 10:30am, & noon. Very peaceful and a good feeling of the presence of God around. Very Catholic orientated. Bring your own containers for the holy dirt, or holy water to take home.

We took this old road to Chimayo, en route to Truchas and Taos. Well worth doing. Chimayo attracts about 3000,000 visitors yearly, many of whom are pilgrims seeking cures. This was not us but it is a truly fascinating tiny village, historical and charmingly old worldly. Take time and visit.

The drive to get to the church from Santa Fe is beautiful so have your camera ready. Once you find the church, they do have parking down from the church, no too far of a walk. There are pictures and rosary's all over the grounds of those asking for prayers or those who have been healed from all the crutches... More

This church was very real and peaceful--of and for the people. We arrived during the last open hour of the day and it was especially quiet which we appreciated. We are interested now to read more about the history of this beautiful church.

The whole experience was great. The artwork inside both the churches is amazing. I spent more time than I expected here. It's very peaceful and I would love to go back.

We arrived at the Santuario on a rainy afternoon but that did not dampen the spiritual experience one bit. The crucifix inside the chapel is beautifully hand crafted/painted while the room filled with crutches and braces makes you realize what a holy place this is where people have been healed. Bring a small baggie to collect the "holy dirt" to... More
