Had not seen Teotihuacan in ages. I forgot how large and tall they were. Used to the Mayan sites that are much smaller. It was impressive to see again after so many years. Since I had been, new areas were found and opened to the public. The only problem are the vendors. There are more vendors than stones, all selling... More

It is amazing to see this complex that houses the historic and the Basilicas. You will be in awe with the delicate religious art. You do not have to be catholic or religious to enjoy this attraction. However if you are, that's a bonus. To see the facade of the church from the side and realize that this temple has... More

I'm not particularly religious. But the old church is certainly a piece of Mexican history. The new church is worth the visit as an example of modern architecture, and as a symbol of Mexico's devotion to the Catholic religion.

A place of a lot of faith! Unforgettable! The place has a big courtyard with the old church, no less important, and the new sanctuary that welcome a lot of people ! Impossible to stay indifferent to the incredible story that tells us about the Virgin Mary!

I've already reviewed the pyramid of the sun so won't talk about teotihuacan here, just Guadalupe. let me be clear: i don't believe in miracles and I admire the fact that there is real separation of church and state in mexico. however, the basilica really shows how religious Mexicans still are and how they still very much follow their faith....

My friend who lives in Mexico City took me to visit the Teotihuacan. We had a very short time frame to squeeze it in - I was amazed every second I was there. Take the time and do the tour. The building is sinking and the floors are uneven - so watch your step ... Aztec ruins have be discovered... More

Please take someone that gives you the tour, without these is just a bunch of rocks. It can become really crowded in the Basilica, but really worth the trip. Amazing culture.

Basilica Lady of Guadalupe is on a large tract of land and comprises two basilicas, the much more modern one and the original one....with both imposing structure and well worth the visit. The pyramids at Teotihuacan should be one of the wonders of the world. there is a fair bit of walking and if on a tour, try to join... More

The Virgin is seen among Mexican people wherever they may be. It is found in jewelry, home décor, churches and even tattoos. There is great love of The Virgin as both religious and cultural pride. It is surreal seeing that it a real artifact. The lighting is somewhat dime due to the need for preservation of the piece. The lighting... More
