Basílica de Guadalupe

Mexico City

The most beloved temple
The Basilica of Guadalupe is one of the most visited religious centers in the world and the most important temple for Mexicans.
 
This is an emblematic tourist attraction of Mexico City, which you will undoubtedly enjoy, since there are many things to discover.
 
For example, the "Templo Expiatorio a Cristo Rey", also called "Antigua Basílica de Guadalupe" (Old Basilica de Guadalupe), which housed the original image of the Virgin Mary; its construction began in 1695 and was completed in 1709.
 
Small town of religious temples
On one side of the Temple is the "Parish of the Capuchinas" (Cappucine Nuns Parish), built in 1729. You should also visit the "Capilla del Cerrito" in the Cerro del Tepeyac, from there you have a panoramic view of the area. Another attraction is the Tepeyac cemetery, where the remains of different important figures in the history of Mexico are found, such as President Antonio López de Santa Ana and his wife.
 
In the Museum of the Basilica you will find a large collection of New Spain art that includes paintings, sculptures, historical items, and more.
 
As you can see, the Basilica has so many attractions that it takes a good part of the day to visit it, we recommend you to organize your itinerary so you do not miss any details.
 
The Basilica of Guadalupe is located at Fray Juan de Zumárraga No. 2, Villa Gustavo A. Madero, Mexico City. The Museum of the Basilica of Guadalupe is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to18:00 hours.​​
