Virgin of Guadalupe, Mexico City

4.6
Visit a hilltop basilica overlooking the city to see Virgin of Guadalupe, a sacred work of art and object of Catholic pilgrimage. The aspect of the Virgin Mary reportedly appeared before an Aztec convert to Roman Catholicism in 1531. The Virgin performed a miracle, producing flowers in the depth of winter, and a priest who witnessed the event demanded a church be built on the spot immediately. The current basilica dates from 1976 and displays a striking circular design. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Mexico City trip simple and quick.

  • It is very important to make this visit with a guide to get to know the history surrounding the Virgin. It should be go day of week to travel comfortably and get good photos.
