About






























El Santuario de Chimayo
Built by a private individual in 1816 so that local people could worship. Preservationists bought it and handed it over to the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, in 1929. The chapel is now managed by the Archdiocese as a Catholic church. For its reputation as a healing site (believers claim that dirt from a back room of the church can heal physical and spiritual ills), it has become known as the "Lourdes of America," and attracts close to 300,000 visitors a year, including up to 30,000 during Holy Week (the week prior to Easter).  The sanctuary was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
