I think it is the second largest pilgrimage for Our lady of Guadalupe of course the first being to the basilica in Mexico but the weather is a lot colder here

3. Five years ago, on this date, I met my spouse

So, for us, this is a magically special moment in time...

2. Have seen so many references to this site.

Inauguration of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Manuel Arellano, ca. 1709.



Pope Francis celebrated mass here.



Didn't I hear they found an Aztec calendar underneath some of these stones?



Your link says the statue has been transferred to the new basilica, can be seen from any spot in the building.[/center]
Great place for the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
