For pilgrims who wish to take a spiritual journey close to home, Our Lady of Guadalupe Pilgrimage tour offers a pilgrimage experience without the jetlag of traveling to Europe or the Holy Land. Only a two-hour flight from Houston, Mexico City is home to some of the most beautiful churches and shrines in all of the Americas. While on Our Lady of Guadalupe Pilgrimage tour, pilgrims will spend a day at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, beginning with Mass in the modern Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, where the Miraculous image on the Tilma of St Juan Diego is featured above the main altar. Our expert guide will recount the story of how Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego, and you will have the opportunity to view the image up close on a moving walkway. Atop the hill behind the basilica, called Tepiac, you will see the original chapel built on the sight of Our Lady’s apparition.  During your stay in Mexico City, you will also visit Tulpetlac, also known as the Church of the Healing, which is the site of Our Lady’s fifth apparition and where St. Juan Diego’s Uncle was cured. While in Mexico City, Our Lady of Guadalupe Pilgrimage tour will also visit the Metropolitan Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in Latin America, and the National Palace, which are both located on the main square, the Zocalo. You will also visit and have Mass at the Holy Family Church, where you will pray at the tomb of Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro, the Jesuit martyr. Our Lady of Guadalupe Pilgrimage tour will travel to Pueblo, to visit St. Dominic’s Church, and its magnificent Chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, and to visit the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, where you will view the incorrupt body of St. Sebastian of Aparicio. Of course, no trip to Mexico would be complete without a visit to the pyramids of San Juan Teotihuacan. Here you will see the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, and enjoy a Mexican Lunch in a nearby restaurant.
