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...

I went to Mexico City especially to visit the Basilica de Guadalupe and fulfill a promise. I had been there many years ago and now I was coming back to visit this beautiful Basilica. There are two Basilicas - the old and the new one. We were there on a Sunday so there were many people there participating in the... More

This is worth having on your itinerary to better picture the centrality of Catholicism to the Mexican people. The mix of 1970s style with much older church is an interesting contrast.

Initially I was not interested in visiting this site. But a family member kept encouraging us to go, and we had time in our itinerary. I’m glad we went! The main attraction for me was the photo opportunities – more so on the outside, and of the cityscape. And I did not realize that there would be a few different... More

This is a very interesting site. You will get to see many people who have walked on their knees for miles to arrive at the shrine to ask the Virgin for a particular request. If you are visiting Mexico DF, this is one place that should be on your must see list.
