Virgin of Guadalupe, Mexico City

(900+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Go to the Basilica of Guadalupe has always been for me a moment of peace and confidence! There is no time to go without any worry. I always ask for light, peace, confidence and I return home feeling comforted and accompanied to follow life. At all times the Virgin Mary accompanies us and strengthens us!
