The Basilica - La Villa


New Basilica


La Villa de Guadalupe - Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe - A Roman Catholic Church
One of the most important pilgrimage sites for Catholics, it is always full of people.

One of our traditions each time we get to go back to Mexico is to go to La Villa and give thanks to La Virgencita de Guadalupe. On our second day in Mexico we got to go and give her thanks for our safe travels and for all the happiness and health in our lives. It is so spectacular ; ) so many beautiful views and so much to take in. Miguelito loved it and wanted to stay and walk and walk...
