Even if you are not religious and you visit churches and cathedrals in the world, this shrine is very special to the Mexican People and they believe in what the have here, amazing to see how it is run, and how many people come here every day....it is good to visit, just for the folkloric experience.

Every city has its own important church which is worth the visit even if you are not a believer. This one is huge and very interesting to visit and very helpful to understand Mexican faith. It must be hard to keep control when you get thousands of visitors, however this sanctuary is very well organized, huge staff working. Nice underground... More

Amazing that in 2016 people actually believe this foolishness - but it is interesting to watch the people and their devotion to this shrine. Ate at a little stand next to the site that I enjoyed. Went by the actual painting 3 times on the moving side walks -- time well spent if you are interested in learning about Mexican... More

This Church is enormous and words nor pictures do not give it justice. The area is of historical and cultural importance and should be on everyone's bucket list.

To understand veneration of the Virgin of Guadalupe, need to visit this complex and see this chapel in action. Adoration and faith is alive and well and inspiring to see; this modern church is surrounded by a plaza and older chapels. Worth visiting.

This is the 3rd most visited holy site in the world due to the miraculous image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico with an almost cult following. The building itself is a 1970s architectural monstrosity that looks like an enormous flying saucer. Once you enter, there is a bright sign showing you where you enter. You... More

We had the opportunity to visit the shrine on a recent visit with family and friends. We took the MetroBus which was a little crowded but very inexpensive and a fast way to travel through the city. Although it is easy to just walk around and see everything i suggest you schedule a walking tour with one of the guides.... More
