El Santuario de Chimayo

Our New Mexico trip this spring took us to El Santuario de Chimayo, a small Catholic church northeast of Santa Fe. It is known for the pit inside the church which holds sand which is renowned for its healing capabilities. Visitors aren't allowed to take pictures inside the church, but the site Roadside America has a few shots of the pit and the crutches placed on the wall after people have been healed. And here are some more inside the church photos in this Flicker photo group.

Here is the official site -- Archdiocese of Santa Fe

Chet, we went by Chimayo, too! I think the High Road was incredible.

Yeah, it was beautiful. Wouldn't mind living there if I could become independently wealthy.
