Basílica de Guadalupe

Basílica de Guadalupe

Technically, there are two basilicas in Plaza de las Américas: the first one, built between the 16th and 18th centuries near Tepeyac Hill, where a young indigenous man named Juan Diego saw the Virgin Mary, and the second one, built in the 1970s. With a modern circular structure so that the image of the Virgin can be seen from any point, the new basilica can seat 50,000 people and is one of the most visited religious sites in the world.
