“So peaceful”

Sanctuario de Chimayo
Ranked #2 of 12 things to do in Chimayo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We were there in the morning and it was not crowded. So quiet and peaceful. The history is fascinating. It is a sacred place. The staff are so kind and welcoming. We spoke with people that come here every year-and see why. Do not miss this experience. Bring tissue, because you will be deeply touched.

This is a sacred place with true natural beauty. It can get crowded, so go during an off time. There is some commercialism, but I guess that goes with the territory.

We visited early in the morning, not much of a touristy feel then. Very peaceful, quiet experience.
The people caring for the chapel were very helpful and seemed welcoming to those who were visiting.
Make sure to go in the back area to see the devices left by those who were healed. There is also a
small pit of holy dirt that you can touch and use for healing purposes if you wish. Good to just sit
in the chapel and soak up the peacefulness. There is a small gift shop with local crafts and religious
items. Also, a bathroom is available on the grounds.

We used to live near Cloudcroft, NM. We would come up to Chimayo for truly special meals at Rancho de Chimayo Restaurant, and,of course, visit the Sanctuario. Back in the '80's it was "unknown". Now it has certainly been "discovered" and developed... Yet it retains it's authenticity, mystery and charm.
I still recommend it.
