This shrine was established on an ancient Indian site of miracle dirt. It is said that the soil has healing powers. The Catholics then "discovered " it and built a church/shrine on the site hundreds of years ago. It is a quiet and thoughtful place. There are homemade crosses stuck in the fence on the walkway up the the courtyard. Everywhere there are examples of people's hope, rosaries, pictures of loved ones, crosses. The dirt is in an alcove of the chapel, you can touch it and take some with you. The area also has a small creek running thru it which gives it a cool and green feeling. It reminded me of the vortexes in Sedona AZ. If you are Catholic this is a must stop place, if not it is still very interesting.
