The establishment of the Santuario is a very unusual story. Make sure you hear it. Penitants from Central America, and others, still to the Santuario for its healing powers. A mixture of hispanic, Native American and anglo influences make this a unique site.

This is a historic and holy site in the foothills out of Santa Fe. The area around the sanctuary has been updated to add much-needed parking and a walkway to the church. There is disabled parking in the old parking site. Always a spiritual experience,...More

We came to Chimayo to visit this church. Quite a spiritual and peaceful encounter. We were not able to attend Mass during the week but still were able to see the church and the chapels.

This church is a well preserved piece of architecture. It is a very awe inspiring religious experience in seeing and reading about people that have visited and been healed

This is a must see if you're into religion. If not then who knows. Once I got into the grounds a sense of peace came over me. Mass was going to start but didn't sit and listen. Walked in the church to sit and pray...More

t’s unfortunate that the sanctuary at Chimayó doesn’t allow pictures on the inside because there is some art that really warrants study. I can understand no flash as it would disturb the peace of the sanctuary but silent photos should be allowed - thus 4...More

Let your body and mind rest at the beautiful setting of the Santuario. Walking around the premises and sitting down in solitude in the garden is very peaceful. The chapel is beautiful and worth a visit even if you are not a practicing catholic.

Not sure as i'm not a local. Suggest you call Sacred Heart or Santuario and ask about local transportation for Good Friday service.
