Tour description

Get to know the Basilica of Guadalupe, the wonderful story of the apparitions of the Virgin to Juan Diego and all the mysteries attributed to the image engraved on the ayate!

We started in the metro "La Villa, Basílica" going up the pilgrims' road and entering the great Plaza Mariana.
We will visit the interior of the Basilica and next to the monumental image of Saint John Paul II we will begin the ascent to Tepeyac, following in the footsteps of Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin and the places where the Virgin appeared to him four times.
At the top we will visit the Capilla del Cerrito and enjoy a great view of Mexico City. On the descent we can see the fountain in honor of the Miracle "The offering"
To rest from the ascent and with a better context of the apparitions we will know details, mysteries and miracles that this famous image contains.
Finally, we will visit the old Basilica, the Parish of Santa María de Guadalupe Capuchinas, the Guadalupano Carrillón and the recommendation to visit the museum in honor of La Reina del Tepeyac.

Also recommendations for places to bring souvenirs, religious and devotional articles, water blessings and places to eat without falling into tourist traps.

    I will be outside the La Villa Basílica Metro, walk only 20 steps and meet me on the Guadalupe road. I will wear a yellow and white flag on the tip of my selfie stick.

La semana pasada llegamos a Ciudad de México por primera vez, el primer día 1 de marzo tomamos el free tour con Mónica, la guía, fue muy paciente al esperarnos porque aún no nos ubicábamos muy bien, y el recorrido que nos dio a lo largo de la Basílica fue muy completo y ameno, gran guía con excelente experiencia y carisma, recomendándonos también actividades para realizar. Recomendadísimo!!
