Basilica of Santa Maria de Guadalupe
Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe is famous for the fact that a man named Juan Diego claimed to have had a vision of the Virgin Mary in 1531. The image of the Virgin can be found at the church, and she has become the religious icon in Mexico ever since.
It is a beautiful place. The church�s structure is amazing. It has beautiful gardens and waterfalls. It�s amazing how the cloth in which she appeared in hundreds of years ago is still perfectly clear. You should visit this place even if you aren�t Catholic. It is free and it was worth the time.
My partner and I just return from Mexico. The last time I was in Mexico City I was 14 years my parents always took me to the old Basilica. This time that I went it was a beatifull and peacefull feeling as well. I don't think you need to be catholic to feel that once you walk in and see the Virgen the Guadalupe. You can not take falsh pictures inside.
It was a beutiful day outside and the local people were very friendly. My wife and I walked around for about 2 hours in the sorrounding area and even thou there was alot of people we had a great time. Great place for pictures and the food was awsome.
If you go just before the feast day, Dec. 12th, you see people walking from all across the country to Mexico City for the Mass and celebration. There were 10's of thousands of people at the shrine, singing, dancing, and praying. It was inspirational!
We had a driver and van take us to the church area. This was inexpensive and a recommended way to come. It was early Thursday morning, so not crowded at all. The Bassilica is listing to the left, and being repaired, but we were still allowed to go inside and photograph. The newer modern church to the left, holds 10,000 and had a very interesting alter w/the remnant of the Virgin framed within it. It was a beautiful space, and nice to walk around the square. Huge gift shop below w/anything and everything printed w/the Guadelupe image.
You must visit this place and if you did not then you where not in Mexico City. It is an amazing place full of energy. The structure and inside architecture is nice. It is amazing at the devotion that poeple have. They even kneel and walk in this way up to the church. It was a one in a lifetime experience. Do not go on major religous days since it will be tooooo crowded.
Yes, the church is amazing. But if you walk between the old building and the new, you will find the beautiful gardens where the Virgin spoke to Juan Diego. Amidst the gardens you will find a handful of ornate chapels and fountains. Absolutely lovely!
