As a catholic I was overwhelmed with the presence of the Holy Spirit. My motions took over me the presence of the Virgin of Zapopan just had me enthralled. It’s a must experience for any true believer

Loved Zapopan and standing in front of this historic basilica. The inside is smaller than you would think but beautiful. The surrounding massive plaza is also great with tons of vendors and street food on the weekend.

One word... SUBLIME! We will definitely come back and stay overnight, with enough time to participate in Mass and sit down to chat with one of the Franciscan Frays. Excellent coffee at the coffee shop next door, plenty of spiritual and catholic readings and artifacts...More
