I am catholic so this is a must for me. However, besides the religious thing, it is really incredible how big and well organized this place is. The Cerro del Tepeyac has an amazing trek to walk, from where you will see the entire City of Mexico in a clear day. It has a lot of history (+450 years) involved,... More

Is a little far from the center of the city. Early in the morning is the best hour to go to the basilic. Thousands of people go every day to this place for adoration of the saint. Colossal space surround the modern church in the middle, next to the antique church. You may experiment a freedom and peace feeling stand... More

A sacred site for many with the new church extremely modern while the old one seems to be preferred by the masses. Both are located on the one big site. Can go with a tour or take the subway on your own.

This is a must visit place in Mexico City for its architecture and its religious importance. This is the biggest church in Latin America and this place is really filled with divine energy and blessings.

Take a ride to this pilgrim place for catholics. The new church is modern style open architecture, but the old one is a beauty. Also have a look at the astronomical clock on the square very impressing

Incredible to be at the site of one of the most significant events in history. This is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world. Worth the research and being open to understanding the transformational influence of this apparition.

One of the most visited shrines in the world! Read the story on the Holly Virgin of Guadalupe appearances to Saint Juan Diego, it will make your visit much more rich and interesting.

The basilica is definitely a money-maker for the church but for those of us who love the V de G, it's a must. So just deal with the commercialism and enjoy her!
