  • Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

    This basilica sits on one of the most revered sites in the country--the place where the vision of the Virgen de Guadalupe, Mexico's patron saint, is said to have been first seen. The basilica itself isn't particularly notable but seeing the thousands of pilgrims who make their way here--many on their knees from miles away--is a moving experience. If you happen to be in Mexico City on or around December 12th, the Virgen's feast day, definitely come here. Not only does the daily number of pilgrims rise into the hundreds of thousands but there are all sorts of festivities involving food, music, and fireworks.

    The Basilica of Guadalupe is one of the most cherished places for the Roman Catholic faithful in Mexico. The small little original Basilica is there, but the later iteration of it ( I believe the third) is next to it, where you can go inside and see the picture of Guadalupe in her Golden Frame.

    Many devout Mexican Catholics get on their hands and knees and cross the large cobbled square to the Basilica, praying with each movement toward it, and climbing up its long staircase on hands and knees, such is their devotion.

    Possibly the most important Catholic church in the country, la Basilica de Guadalupe is a massive series of structures and plazas that pilgrims literally crawl to once a year to demonstrate their devotion, arriving with bloody palms and knees. Fortunately it's a much less gruesome scene the other 364 days of the year, and should be a must-see on any visit to Mexico City.
