El Santuario de Chimayó has been called "no doubt the most important Catholic pilgrimage center in the United States."
In the early 1800's, it is said that Don Bernardo Abeyta saw a light shining from the hillside and dug up a crucifix with his bare hands. He turned it over to Fr. Álvarez, who took it to the Santa Cruz church, but the crucifix mysteriously returned to the spot where Abeyta found it. After the third time this happened, Álvarez and Abeyta decided to build a chapel on the spot to house the crucifix. Soil found at the site is said to have healing powers
