El Santuario de Chimayo Shrine, Chimayo, New Mexico (about two hours north of Albuquerque)

Many people make pilgrimages to the church at Chimayo because they believe that the dirt from the original dirt floor has healing powers. Other people go to visit the charming church and eat at its nearby restaurant.
