Painting #47  Santuario de Chimayo, Chimayo, New Mexico (near Santa Fe)  (Available)

El Santuario de Chimayo is located in the small town of Chimayo, approximately 30 scenic miles north of Santa Fe. This quaint Spanish-style Catholic church is visited by thousands of pilgrims each year.

The mystery that has made El Santuario de Chimayo legendary occurred in 1807 when a friar dug up a crucifix he was drawn to by a light emanating from a hillside. Although the friar, relocated the crucifix to a church in SaM several times, the cross always ended up in the same pit in Chimayo where ting the chapel. A larger shrine had to be built in 1816 as more and more people came to the site hoping to be healed.
