Catholic Shrines & Places of Interest in Mexico City

In this teeming city of over 14 million people you will find one of the most visited shrines in the world, Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe alone draws millions of pilgrims on December 12th each year in addition to those who visit at other times.

There are also other sites that are a “must see” here including the Church of the Holy Family to venerate the remains of Blessed Miguel Pro and also the Church of the 5th apparition.

The rich Catholic tradition, built upon the ancient pagan traditions, make this city one of the most interesting that you will visit. There are many cultural and historical attractions as well, including museums and other cultural venues.

Despite safety concerns, many groups continue to travel here and the violence so eagerly reported by the media has not affected pilgrims traveling to these holy sites. We encourage you to consider a visit here and experience it for yourself.
