We were brought here by our tour guide Jorge Mendoza. Because mass was going on (every hour 6 a.m. through 6 p.m.) we were in the plaza and the mountains came into view!

The most important place in Mexico for Mexicans. Spectacular new basilica surrounded by ancient churches. Old churches are severely listing because of earthquakes. Park underneath.

Great experience! The main church is open and enough seating for everyone. Visit the museum and the church on the hill. Several restroom all around but beware you will need to pay to use them.
