I am personally not devout.. but you come here and you can´t help wondering.. The basilica is a very spiritual place but also a great place to watch Mexico on a closer look. Bring your camera and as in any large crowd beware of pickpockets.

A vast magnificent building, with capacity to hold up to 10,000 people. A must see, but you don't need long here - many tours include it as a pit stop. Around the square are a number of other smaller churches also worth looking in.

The 3 churches on the site are amazing. I appreciated all of the artifacts, picture of the Virgin Mary (there is actually a moving walkway under the alter to view her), and the enormous size of the cathedral. This is not an all day stop, but rather a 1-2 hour stop (or longer if you intend to pray or stay... More

I would definitely go to see it. Although I found it a bit disrespectful as there was a mass being conducted and I'm sure its distracting to the priest and parishioners attending. But lets face it how many times do you get to see an artifact that dates hundredths of years and a great story behind it. I am not... More

It is an impressive church, very modern and innovative. The miracle of Virgin is depicted on the statues. Note that a lot of people from all over the world visit the church, so behave properly

If you go on a Sunday, expect it to be over crowded with many pilgrimages. People in tents that have stayed overnight and to have the parking lots closed, which means you have to pay for parking a few miles away. If you can, choose to go in the afternoon, like about 2pm. The crowds will die down, you can... More

Very special place for catholics. If you don't have any religious interest, it's not interesting. It's possible to get a bless from a local priest .
