A must-see for anyone who wishes to learn more about Mexican culture and experience the most revered site and miracle for Mexicans. Located where the Virgen presented herself to Juan Diego, this place is typical Mexico City. It's on a lake, and this is evident in the older churches on the square, where as soon as you go in, you... More

What can I say about visiting the Basilica? It was beautiful and spiritual. It's an amazing place with a rich history. It feels amazing to be in front of Her. We went a little later in the afternoon so there was not a lot of people there but the Capiya del Tepeyac was closed at that time. Other than that... More

There are no guided tours on the weekends. There are hourly masses and confessions throughout the day at the basilica. The chatter and lack of solemnity took away from my experience, but seeing the image of our Virgin Mary was incredible! I went on the conveyor 3 times to take pictures, but once just to look and appreciate. The Chapel... More

More than religious, for me it was a historical experience. You can see a lot of the mexican religious culture when visiting the Basilica. Go up the hill and visit where the virgin Mary appeared for the first time in front go the Indigena, where the image was captured by the clothe he was wearing. An amazing story to hear.... More

We came here on a weekday to avoid the crowd. It was an amazing experience being here with our family. The shrine is beautiful and peaceful.

At the airport we hired a taxi service that took us to the Basilica, the museum and the Zocalo. Sadly our flight delay was only 5 hours, but fair enough to take a walk by this awesome places.

This is a place to visit for those who venerate the Vierge of Guadalupe. My experience was short but I couldn't understant why there is a mass service and a great deal of nouse and party on the outside perturbating the service... (Although I was enjoying a clown gathering I felt bad for the people on the inside of the... More

If you are religious, this is the #1 pilgrimage site in Mexico. If you are not, it is still culturally quite interesting, as you get to watch Mexican religiosity in the full breadth of its expression. It is particularly interesting during pilgrimage season... but be careful. The crowds really do rise to dangerous levels at those times, especially on December... More
