Miracle Detectives - Tour of Chimayó
8 of 11
In a small room, known as "el pocito" (the well), is a small, circular pit that is filled with "holy dirt". Many believe this dirt to possess healing powers and travel to Chimayó in order to cure themselves of their ailments; visitors to the Santuario have been known to rub the dirt on their bodies - some going so far as to consume it - in an attempt to heal their sicknesses.
