    Chimayo is a tiny village, home to the famed Santuario and Ranch Chimayo as well as several well known weaving studios and other artists. For those in the know, it is also the home of world famous Chimayo chile peppers. Something about the local soil offers healing properties AND supports the growth of these wonderful and unique chiles.

    Sweet little New Mexican village off the high road to Taos. The church (sanctuario) is fascinating to explore. Definitely worth picking up the local chile powder and array of goodies associated with it--yum!

    Chimayo is a tiny little town about an hour north of Santa Fe. It is a good day trip from Santa Fe to visit the Sanctuario. The old church is really cool and they have a small room with special dirt that is supposed to have miraculous powers.

Description

A sleepy village along the high road between Santa Fe and Taos. Pilgrims come from around the world to the Sanctuario at Chimayo for healing. There are well known artisans who produce carvings, weavings and religious artifacts. The local chilies are also famous and worth sampling from one of the restaurants or taking home some dried powder for later.
