Description

One of the prettiest and most photogenic missions in the southwest, the Sanctuario del Chimayo can also be a nightmare for photographers during the tourist seasons as tour bus after tour bus disgourges hundreds of pilgrims seeking the healing benefits of the church's soil, which many believe is capable of miraculous cures. Arrive very early in the day or outside of the summer season and Holy Week if you want to be able to photograph the mission without dozens of tourists frustrating your efforts.
