We hired this day excursion out of the Sheraton Hotel on Reforma Ave, the tour guide was very nice, knowledgeable, and the day trip was well worth it. Guadalupe is impressive due its size and the number of visitors. We then continued to the pyramids, which were also magnificent. Try to climb both of them for a magnificent view from... More

we went to both the basilicas, the older one in the classical style and the newer one where our lady is. the newer one is not so impressive in structure and we much preferred the older one, it gave a more prayerful feeling and was not so commercialised. lots of religious articles for sale and even though we went at...

Visiting the Basilica is one of the best ways to understand Mexican culture and the close interrelationship with Mexican heritage. In addition to the beautiful architecture of the building, the mystery that surrounds the apparitions of Lady of Guadalupe make this an unforgettable visit.

You can get there using the metro. There you will be able to visit the churches dedicated to the Lady of Guadalupe, buy some items to remember the trip by and take a lot of pictures. It is definitely a beautiful place to visit.

Good trip to spent day in MC to be familiar with its acient and new history. Many hotels (even those close to the airport) offers this trip, so if your flight is late evening - go ahead...

So much history! The older structure, built in Colonial period, is sinking, and it's hard to maintain balance at the entrance, but still people go there to worship. The new structure is huge and seats 10,000. Guadalupe is such a part of Mexico's culture.

We visited both the new and old basilica. Amazing! you have to see both. The old basilica is a very decorative colonial building. We also took sometime to step outside and hang at the plaza de la basilica. beautiful.

It is worth a visit for all history behind it. Nevertheless, be prepared to pass through many many stores selling everything you can imagine related to Lady of Guadalupe... a bit chaotic. On the other hand, if you need to find restrooms there.... try using the ones inside the "bigger" stores... take the opportunity that you will buy souvenirs anyway... More

The image of the madonna which attracts so many pilgrims from all over the world might be worth a visit only if you are around / but I would strongly discourage a visit to the basilica of guadalupe all in all simply because there is not much to see / the new basilica is mostly for the devout who is...
