Virgin of Guadalupe, Mexico City

4.5
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.

  • Seeing both the old chuch and the new basilica was very fascinating as well as learning the story of the art work.  more »
  • One of the most interesting to visit in the city of Mexico, beyond of the religious beliefs of each one. There are tours that include the Basilica of Guadalupe and the pyramids of Teotihuacan, which begin at 9:00 and end at 17:00. It is a good option in Mexico City.

  • This is where St. Juan Diego saw the Virgin of Guadalupe. Beautiful old church and modern one where the Guadalupe cloth is easy to go see. Pretty walk up and around the hill. Wonderful church at top.  more »

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
