|After lunch, you'll visit the Santuario de Chimayó, which has been called the "Lourdes of Northern New Mexico," and is famous for the healing earth found inside. You'll also visit a nearby weaving center. Chimayo has several families who have been known for their beautiful weaving for many, many years. The Hispanic weavings are different from those of Native American origin, and it's interesting to see all of the things that can be made from the beautiful naturally dyed wool that is used. You'll see traditional rugs, but also beautiful vests and jackets, placemats, handbags, and more.|
