Very moving and beautiful. It is worth knowing the story of the miracle, it means more to the visitor, certainly a very special place.

The best way to go there is with the Touribus on your way to Teotihuacán. You will get much more understanding of the Mexican culture after this visit.

Worth seeing - this the main catholic shrine in the Country. Especially new church is interesting, but also side churches and the square.

My first trip to Basilica de Guadalupe was a wonderful trip. It's a memorable experience, especially if you are catholic and loves Mother Mary. Saturday and Sundays are very crowded, but still a great experience. If you are driving a rent-a-car, make sure you go closer to basilica and there are tons of paid parking area (costs 50-80 pesos for... More

Liked the easy access to see the image of the Virgin Mary as it was imprinted in the fabric, it gives you the chills!The grounds are beautiful, the building inside is so pretty. It is worth to go all the way up and see the Chappell, walk to the gardens. I disliked the area where we parked, the streets nearby... More

I liked more to see some devotees coming with big flowers, which I find interesting culturally, so maybe it´s a better visit if you go on an important catholic... More

Remarkable moment with her in the place where everything started (her miracles and stuff) for Catholics its a great experience and for not Catholics as well it can be very interesting site to know better our culture (Mexican culture) and the devotion, very good example of sharing from Mexico to the world.

Me and my wife decided to take a tour guide with car to go to the shrine. It was an excellent choice as we have had a really good historical background. It was also comfortable to get there by car. The name of our guide is Andrés Morgan. Find out his services at his website. toursinmexico.us

Totally worth seeing. She has meant so much to many people in Mexico. Just a beautiful complex of buildings with frescoes, massive carvings, ornate paintings and altars.
