There is not much right in the area, but this church is lovely. It's a good spot for some pictures and atmosphere of New Mexico country.

A beautiful and unique place, with the Santo Nino being its most moving place within this very nice and friendly town. The reason and spirit behind this place is powerful beyond any religion; good to think and to be grateful.

Very historic church. A tour inside is permitted. The religious artifacts attest to the long history of the church. Lots of crutches in the basement from pilgrims seeking a cure. It is located next to the Sanctuary de Chimayo and easily included the trip.
