I like the pictures it takes at night. It is lit up well and you can see it from Pub Row that is a block a way. Entrance is only during the day

Try to visit Zapopan during the Procession of the Virgin (the Virgin returns "home" to the Basilica after touring each parish in the diocese. It is very crowded but an amazing and colorful experience.

The mass was okay but extremely overcrowded!! Very small for the amount of people that visit, most people had to stand and/or couldn't even come in..
