There are hundreds of crutches, braces and other medical devices left there by people who have been cured of their ailments. Unfortunately for you, there is a ban against taking photos, so you cannot see the inside of the church, the holy dirt, and the room full of photos and medical devices.
We then drove to Santa Fe and visited the state capitol building (the first that we have encountered that doesn't have the traditional dome) and another church, The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Then we did a lot of walking around the shopping area of Santa Fe, Debbie only buying a pink Santa Fe t-shirt. Note: the capitol building is more like an art museum. They have hundreds of paintings, sculptures, tapestries, etc. Six million dollars worth of art decorate the walls.
