Since part of my family is Catholic, we visit the Basilica every time we come to Mexico City. As a Methodist, I still find it and interesting and peaceful place. It can be very crowded on religious holidays, so unless that holiday is important to you it may be better to visit at other times.

It's sad to see such a shrine to Mary. I know it's the catholic way, but this is over-the-top. The basis of these churches is based on non-biblical myths.

The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is located where Our Lady of Guadalupe is believed to have appeared to Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin. Inside the new Basilica you can see the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that is believed to be the most accurate. I was told this basilica is visited by 7 million people every year, especially...

Came here to visit on my first trip to Mexico City. Parked 2 blocks before we got to the basilica. There is plenty of little great shops when you walk to the basilica. The church is very beautiful and it as a lot of architecture behind it. There is dancer dancing outside of the church. Went underground and took a... More

In this church plaza, you can visit up to 6 churches but concentrate on the " original " basilica of the Guadalupe virgin. It was sinking to its left but was fixed so no need to panic. You do feel the shift in the floor when you walk down the left area. It's outside was cleaned and some outside statues... More

I have been to Mexico City twice and this was the highlight of both trips. I could not believe how large and beautiful this area was. You can walk thru the park and visit all the churches and even get a bite to eat. We meandered for about two hours. We took uber there and then walked to another area... More

We visited the church after Teotihuacan on 1/12/2017. We got off the bus at Indios Verdes. We took a metro 2 stations to the church. The church is beautiful, especially the old church. The church area is huge. We didn't have time for walking to the top.

To be honest, large ornate churches are not a favourite and yet the devotion of the pilgrims inside and out is very moving

This is a beautiful site. Not to be missed. I wish I had known none of the informational plaques would have an English translation or a guide for hire to walk the properties with you. Not speaking Spanish very well we were very much at a loss as to what we were looking at all day.

The churches are stunning, a lot to see in a short area. The new church I thought as spectacular as the old. We were there at 7.30am so not too busy but could imagine it becoming quite busy later on.
