Let us visit this beautiful sanctuary!

We will visit the Basilica de Guadalupe, Latin America's most revered religious shrine. It is here where the Virgin of Guadalupe is said to have appeared before an Indian named Juan Diego in 1531 and an image of her was miraculously emblazoned on his cloak. We will have time to explore the New Basilica de Guadalupe and admire Juan Diego's cloak; the Old Basilica, built in 1700; the Parish of Indians; the Chapel of the Pocito, with an exquisite barroco style; and the Hill Chapel, located in Tepeyac hill, is here where the Virgin first appeared.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour could not have been more enjoyable. Karina picked us up at the exact time she promised and we were on our way. Since this was our first time in Mexico City she immediately share cultural and interesting information along the way. Her knowledge of the Basilica and the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe was extremely informative and she took the time to show us the entire area and the churches that have been build throughout the years She knew the best shopping and where to take the best pictures.
