Watching the faithful come here, many of them making the final part of their journey on their knees in the humblest supplication, a laborious progression around and across the vast courtyard in front of the basilica is a moving experience. la Villa de Guadalupe is a place worth visiting no matter your religion is. It is a must see when... More

Probably Mexico City's most popular and important shrine. You will always find locals and tourists visiting, just make sure you are not there on or near December 12th - the day of the Virgin of Guadalupe!

Unless this is tacked onto a day trip out to the Pyramids, I'd def give this experience a miss...! The highlight is an overcrowded moving walkway whizzing you by a small statue (or from memory a picture). It was one of the most absurd things I've seen! The old cathedral/church you can't actually go inside of, you can see the... More

The pilgrims are so devoted and faithful. Many crawl all the way to the later. Mass runs continuously.

I visited the basilica twice and I will go back for more visits in the future. The place is very accessible. The area is park-like but with a very spiritual ambience. I love being with devotees because they help me look at expressions of faith in different ways.

Beautiful and important. Walk on moving stairway behind the altar to get up close and to see the beautiful flowers donated next to the altar.

Looking at the Basilica you might Think this is not a typical catholic Church and of course it isnt. This Place is Very Special and you feel a good spirit in the Air. Viewing the mantle of Guadalupe gave me shivers. Not to miss in DC, and definitely a must as religious catholic

The Virgin of Guadalupe has been a central symbol and organizing force in Mexico for hundreds of years. The image is reproduced in churches in every part of the country, and Miguel Hidalgo carried it into the conflict that started off the war of Mexican Independence. IMHO, the outside of the new basilica isn't anything to write home about, but... More

I would recommend a visit here and there are such old and beautiful buildings in this area. This is a Roman Catholic Church and a Pilgrimage site that houses the cloak of Juan Diego which holds the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe You can also see the old church which is slowly sinking and is tilted on an incredible...
