Visited the cathedral during a mass and although it was very busy this added to the impact on us. Able to see the artefacts and then wonder around the plaza outside afterwards and visit the other neighbouring structures - and see how they are sinking!

This site was included in part of the Wayak tour I took while in Mexico City. You can see the Virgin of Guadalupe from every entrance thanks to the way it was designed. The other sites around the main square where very nice as well.

The basilica of the virgin is home to perhaps Mexico's most iconic image, the virgin of mary of Guadeloupe. While this painting is pretty, this site is nothing special. The new church is ugly. The old one is beautiful, one of the better colonial churches of Mexico. There are 5 or so more chapels in the area, not one of... More

Totally in awe of experiencing the basilica. Seeing the procession of people making their way to visit the Virgin de Guadelupe some with mariachi bands was inspiring. The building itself is a work or art, and when viewed could be any type of meeting hall. It is architecturally beautiful. And to understand the number of people per day who visit,... More

The picture actually shows the newer church, built in the 1970's, as I recall, and it is open for masses on Sundays. THe Virgin is actually in the church, older stone one, at the top of the plateau, and there's almost always a line/wait to get in and walk past the representation of the Virgina Guadalupe...interesting storyline, probably more sacred...

The church is ok, it's the crowds of people who come there that make this place interesting. It was a little overwhelming but it's a big part of the local culture, thus worth seeing.

We were taken to the Basillica as part of a tour to the Piramides Teotihuacan. Even though I'm not religious, I could see and feel the importance of this place. You may or may not be a fan of modern architecture but for the traditionalists you have the older buildings that are sinking and the more modern structure now housing... More
