What a fabulous place to see...a definite must if you are visiting Mexico City. I usually do private tours but because of planning time constraints I did it in a group - and it was still great! The only thing one must note is to avoid going on Sundays. That day it is apparently free for Mexican citizens so it... More

The basilica has beautiful gardens and walkways. These areas are great backgrounds for photo shoots of your loved ones. We went to the Teotihuacan pyramids and loved the site. The next day we took a balloon ride over the pyramids....AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

Listened to a concert inside the Basilica on a Sunday during the week of celebration. The museum there is very interesting as is a walk around the town while sampling some of the food served during that time.

I didn't know what to expect but between the older basilica, the older churches on the grounds and the newer Basilica, I was very impressed and enjoyed that site immensely.

If you are not the least bit religious the Basilica probably doesn't have much to offer you. However, if you are religious, and especially Catholic, it is a must see in Mexico City. While space-ship looking on the outside, the interior of the modern church is stunning and houses the famous relic above the altar (be sure to ride the... More
