Welcome to Chimayó
Even though the High Road to Taos has barely climbed out of the valley, the Hispanic village of Chimayó is generally regarded as the single biggest attraction on the entire route. It’s home to a little twin-towered adobe chapel, El Santuario de Chimayó, which is not only extraordinarily pretty, but also ranks as perhaps the most important religious site in New Mexico.
Chimayó is also famous for its arts and crafts, and has a centuries-old tradition of producing superb weaving. Family-run galleries sell magnificent creations.
