If you are catholic, I recommend this place. If you are not, well, go for the amusement of it as I did. The original building is awesome, the new one, in my opinion, doesn´t look like a church, especially not beside the original one. But, it´s a good place for a walk.

For mexicans Guadalupe is the Shrine, and they visit it to receive blessings and to pray so the area and place are very impressive, and you can see all kinds of people, it is a must, even if you are not a catholic, to see the Shrine, and the older churches that are inclined due to the earthquake of a...

Interesting history of the old church vs the new church built next to it. Since Mexico is built on an old lake bed, there is shifting land and leaning buildings. Interesting architecture.

If you are Catholic it goes without mentioning the relevance, this should be out of your first stops. If you are not Catholic is an incredible thing to see, the magnitude, electricity and grandiose structure and its history is beyond words. Be respectful and understand the people that are there to pray and you will be fine if you are... More

Very enjoyable....went on a Sunday and lots of people but made it even more impressive with masses going on. The old church more impressive, but all 3 are next to each other and for sure will enjoy the trip

There are 3 churches here. The original one from the religious tale, the newer basilica in the classical style and the modern church. Lovely site, easily accessed, nice souvenir shop.

We had hired a driver to allow us to climb the the steps of the Pyramid of the Sun and then give us some time at the Basilica. However, Monday on a national holiday is not a good time to see religious artifacts. The square is imposing as are the three chapels but long range photography was the closest we... More

Revisited in Jan16 after many years. One amazing place, and very important for so many Mexicans. Visit the old church for a sense of how earthquakes are stronger than anything man can build. And then to the newer church containing the shroud. You see it up close and personal by a series of moving walkways. Seems a little odd to... More

Beyond the obvious spiritual center devoted to Our Lady - is the historically rich structures on the site we would have missed without having had a local tour guide explain the history of each of the buildings. who knew -- a must do.

What a grand Basilica. Forget the leaning tower of Pisa, visit the leaning Basilica De Guadalupe. Use the turibus to visit it, you can get on and off at your leisure.
