“Beautiful Old Church”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

This church and the building surrounding the church was a very tranquil setting. The history is amazing and worth a visit.

“Humbled and Inspired”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This tiny village church, established in 1810, continues to draw thousands of visitors and pilgrims each year who seek healing. There is a mysticism to the place, honor to the Lord, and people of great despair who hold out great hope. You will see the lame, the crippled, the hurt ones, and more, kneeling in the tiny sanctuary. Through a short doorway is a small hole in the ground where all are invited to take home blessed earth. By rubbing mother earth on the affliction (heart, mind, limb), healing is invited in. An inspiring trip.

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The church is beautiful, and I enjoyed the Nino Chapel. The artists who live in the area make amazing pieces - I wish I had packed a spare suitcase to bring more home!

“A pilgrimage for All”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This was our first visit to this most special place. If you believe God is still in the miracle business, this place is a must. The church is a quiet, contemplative experience that will give a calmness in a hectic lifestyle. You will come away feeling better than you have in a long time.
So glad we discovered it and you will too if you are near Santa Fe.

“Unique Church”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This unique small church is worth a stop if only to see the miraculous dirt that pilgrims believe will heal those who are ailing. Allow time to walk around the grounds and see the small sanctuaries scattered throughout the facility.
