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.

This chapel is very interesting to visit if your visiting the Chimayo Santuary. Worth the visit as it will take just a few more minutes.

Take the time to learn about the history, very worthwhile. If you are not careful you will miss this and it is so worth the stop.

This pretty little church is NOT the church with the healing dirt. That's the one up the road. This one is very bright and joyous and certainly worth stopping at to admire the artwork.

While at El Santuario de Chimayo, don't overlook the Santo Nino Chapel. Go into the chapel to the left of the main altar to see the statue of the nino with all the baby shoes donated over the years to ensure the baby Jesus can...More

This chapel is dedicated to children. The interior art work is not as old as that in the main Santuario, and is less somber. There are trees with carved birds, dolls, infant shoes and pictures of children who need prayer. We found it quaint. There...More
