No. 3 Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico City

4 of 43

Annual Visitors: 20 million

The Old Basilica, begun in the 1500s and completed in 1709,
stands in stark contrast to the massive new basilica that was built in the
mid-1970s and looks like a sports arena. It is, in fact, designed to hold
50,000 people, who come for mass—celebrated several times daily—and to see an
image of the Virgin Mary that is said to have appeared on an apron in 1531. sancta.org
