  • Beautiful Bascillica. We attended the mariachi mass and the music made the service fun. I'm not a Catholic but the tour, prior to the mass and the mass were meaningful.  more »
  • The Basilica boasts a large/tall bell tower and the interior of the Basilica is gorgeous! We arrived near the end of the high noon Spanish Mass and quietly made our way around the ante-rooms with the ...  more »

  • Any one will cherish a trip to a mass at the Basilica. The Spiritual power of this Holy Ground will be felt as soon as you enter the grounds. Readers' digest version: Gift shop is staggering with its inventory. Inexpensive up to very high prices there. Holy Water is free at a large fountain. Check times for the masses: we went on Sunday at 3:00 PM for an English mass with the Mariachi band. The structure is awe inspiring, as are the grounds. The Stations of the Cross are on a path that winds across the grounds. I strongly suggest a look at the Basilica website for information, events schedule and history.
  • What a sacred place! I never visit the Valley without stopping by the basilica. Basilicas can be beautiful in different ways. The beauty and simplicity of the devotion of all the many people who come to pray here is what makes this basilica one of the most beautiful in the world. Make sure to pray at the life-size stations of the Cross. The only negative thing about it is there are lots of people from running/jogging along the path of the Stations. It becomes a distraction to those who pray and is also just irreverent to a sacred space. I hope they're able to prevent that in the future!
  • Beautiful Chrism Mass! Bilingual mass, no folkloric music and singing but the choir was awesome. Very angelic and that made the mass especially special. The acoustics at the Basilica Shrine is horrible! I can never continuously hear the Homily. Some words but not complete sentences much less the whole Homily.
  • I have been going there for longer than I can remember and nothing has changed, it remains as beautiful as ever. The employees are always very nice and polite. It is perfect to take a walk outside, they've got the trail. Some people go jogging and others simply walk. Its amazing i definitely love it.
  • Well of course it's going to be packed. It just was a little too busy for my taste. The ground itself was up kept very nicely. I didn't see how to go about using the confessional. however I'm not really even Catholic so it really wasn't something I was searching for a while I was there. There's lots of nice decorations and it's a very peaceful and commonplace. Like I said it just was a little pack for my liking but it is a huge Church.
