We visited Santa Fe New Mexico in April and decided to take a drive out to see the El Santuario De Chimayo located in Chimayo, New Mexico. Out in the middle of nowhere, off the beaten path is this amazing church with an abundance of culture and history. It is well worth the drive to be amazed with a National Historic landmark. Be sure to check out all the history associated with this historic landmark El Santuario De Chimayo Website . It was built in 1816 and is still an active part of the community.
