Don Pedrito Jaramillo Shrine and Curio Shop

An intimate, historical experience honors an important healer in the community. Offerings can be made as well as requests for healing. There is a small cemetery and a curio shop.

[Melanie, 04/16/2022]

At the peak of his powers, Don Pedrito Jaramillo (1829-1907) performed healings on over 500 people a day. His grave is inside the shrine building in the Jaramillo family cemetery; next to his grave is his folk art statue that's often bedecked with offerings. The adjacent Don Pedro Jaramillo Curio Shop ("Buy your candles here!") appears to have been padlocked for some time.
