El Santuario de Chimayo is the “Lourdes” of the United States

The compound contains the El Santuario de Chimayo, “the tiny shrine that is built on the site of what many believe to be a miracle associated with the crucifix of “Nuestro Señor de Esquipulas” (Our Lord of Esquipulas)” and “el pocito” the small pit of Holy Dirt which has been described as the “Lourdes” of the United States. Crutches line the walls left by people who have been cured.
