little bit far but can get there by Metro. It is worth the trip beautiful views from top of the hill. It was a little uncomfortable to go inside to look around while a service was going on but it seams like this is the norm and does not both them.

there are more than 30000 churches in Mexico. This is one that is a must- a combination of a new church-very big and massive with an older one with the picture of the lady. A must see place while in Mexico

I am a devoted follower of the Virgin Mary, specially the Virgen de Guadalupe. I had been wanting to visit the Basilica for the longest time to see the Tilma de Juan Diego (I strongly suggest you read up on it). I was SO not disappointed!! I paid a visit to the Tilma and prayed for a bit, then went... More

I don`t like church so much, but this one is worth to check it out. All the history behind it, very cool. and the original one that it is crashing, it's awesome. When you enter it feels a little drunk, cause is sunken. Cool

The story of the tilma (cape) of Juan Diego, which holds the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is the Shroud of Turin miracle of the New World. Two churches were built to honor this miracle, the old (small) one, and the new (large) one. The tilma, surmounted by a crown, and honored below by the flag of Mexico, can... More

I wen't there expecting a nice church, something like that. In fact there are several and the area itself is pleasent to walk around. (I say this from a keen walker, sightseer and photographer viewpoint). Interesting contrast between hideous 60/70's architecture and the rest. Getting to the view area higher up may be a bit of a hassle for handicapped... More

Enjoyed my visit to the grounds here, this stop was bundled into a tour of the Pyramid or the sun/moon tour. Interesting juxtaposition of the old churches and new. The history both present day and past as it relates to the patrons was fascinating too; worth a visit.

The old historical buildings are just one of the many reasons to visit this place. I had come here several times before but it has changed a lot. The vendors that once clogged up this place are no longer there, all merchants must have a license and are routinely inspected for hygiene and compliance of codes. If you are religious... More
