Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City

The old Basilica, begun in 1695.  Raised to the status of Basilica by Pope St. Pius X, of blessed memory.  The miraculous tilma of Juan Diego was kept here from 1709 - 1974.  Although closed in recent years because it has been sinking, it is open again and a very special place to pray.
