We couldn't figure out why we couldn't find this place. Uber had no idea where it was and the address input into Apple maps returned no results in Monterrey. We finally found it and it wasn't exactly the large cathedral that we were expecting. Most of the TripAdvisor photos were take at the Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadeloupe in... More

Go on a week day... More

The Basílica de Guadalupe is devoted for our Mother Mary of Guadalupe. It has many visitors during the whole year, but most of them come on December the 12th. that is the date when we celebrate the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe.

While it's not located in a fancy neighborhood, if you are catholic or want to be part of mexican traditions, make sure to stop quickly here. Just don't forget to keep your belongings really close to you.

We visited this church hoping to see one of the older cathedrals in Monterrey. Unfortunately, the old church was closed during our visit and the modern church, though very beautiful, did not offer much to see.

The best time to visit Monterrey's Basilica is in the early days of December. You can feel the Mexican fervor for the Guadalupe's virgin. All through December you can see thousands of people coming to visit. Peolple come to ask the virgin for miracles and to give thanksall through the year, but December is the special month because on the... More
