I only visited this religious shrine because it was included in a tour of the pyramids at Teotihuacan. I'm not Catholic, so wouldn't have bothered otherwise. However, the old basilica is an interesting bulding. Its subsiding foundations means that it lists to one side even...More

An impressive church, with especially impressive evidence of the city's sinking foundations (the walls are clearly sloping and the lights dangle at odd angles to the floor!). Clearly a major site of pilgramage for Catholics, but not much to engage with if you're not one...More

A must place to visit for all faiths; but most important by Catholics fulfilling a promise and/or a pilgrimage from all over the country. Also the bedrock of where the Virgen of Guadalupe was first seen!

The beautiful designs of the new Basilica welcome everyone to gaze upon Juan Diego's tilma adorned with the image of the Blessed Mother almost 500 years old. Read a bit on the history of the tilma before going, so when you see it in person...More

Even if you are not Catholic...You should make your way there. You can reach it by taxi, or a bus. I went by bus what it runs for long period of this. I would recommend to go the old church...but you could do both. I...More

It's not so far from the airport, but I can't tell you how much it is. I think Uber should be a good selection to do it.

I'll be heading to Mexico City in June. It's been awhile since I have visited La Villita and I'm looking forward to visiting in honor of my mom (was born in Mexico City) and dad who recently passed away. I remember when i went 6 + years ago people would put pictures and light up candles of their loved ones (there was a memorial). Is this still there? Could we still do this? Leave pictures of our deceased loved ones and light up and pray in memory of them? I look forward for a response to this question. Thank you all.

Hello, I am afraid that I cannot give a definite yes or no, but I will be most surprised if you are not allowed to do so. I hope your plans go well and that your visit gives you solace.
