Stop At: Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe
Have yourself one of the most beautiful experiences by visiting one of the most holy of shrines that is the most visited in the world. The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, with 17 to 20 million visitors a year, having more visitors that St. Peter´s Basilica in the Vatican. As well as the historical buildings, the great circular basilica is awesome as well as grandiose. The construction itself is an amazing feat, since it was built on the muddy shores of the lake of Texcoco. Walking around Tepeyac Hill, where Mary the mother of Jesus left her image imprinted on St. Juan Diego´s ayate is an experience that should not be missed.
