View from the high road.
Chimayó is located 40 miles south of Taos and 24 miles northeast of Santa Fe, about ten miles east of Espanola in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. It is on Hwy 76, often called the High Road to Taos as it is the scenic route, winding through old Spanish villages and New Mexico landscapes.
