When in Santa Fe I always make the trip to Chimayo. It has a calming effect on you. It always seems to be very crowded. I plan on going again in the spring.

The Spanish Colonial art here evokes a sense of the deep spirituality of the faithful who built and used this church. There is a sense of peace in the thick-walled adobe. The crucifix on the altar is exquisite and it alone is worth the visit.

While off the beaten path, the visit here was well worth the drive. The grounds are beautiful, and the church so picturesque! Learning about the backgrounds of the chapels made it even more interesting.

The small church is beautiful and sits in a picturesque location. Interesting to see the devout people come to pray and collect the supposedly miraculous dirt in an adjoining chapel. Literature claims that this shrine is the Lourdes or Fatima of the Southwest. It is...More

We found the Sanctuary of Chimayo by accident. We went for a drive and followed the signs. This place is very beautiful and peaceful. You do not have to be a religious person to appreciate the serenity and to be moved. The Sanctuary is tucked...More

Not sure as i'm not a local. Suggest you call Sacred Heart or Santuario and ask about local transportation for Good Friday service.
