4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.
