In fact, with more than 7 million people visiting the Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida annually, the site of Latin America's largest pilgrimmage brings in crowds that help support the city of 36,000 people. Although there are a handful of other attractions in Aparecida, including several museums, a theme park, and an aquarium, it's the renowned religious site that draws most visitors to the city.
