Catholic Sites in Mexico

Back to Catholic Travel Destinations
Mexico has a rich Catholic tradition dating back centuries to the arrival of the missionaries in the 1500's. However once the famous apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in what is now Mexico City, hundreds of thousands of native people left their pagan religion behind and converted to the Catholic Christian faith.

There was however, a period of time in the 1920's and 1930's when the Mexican government declared war on the Catholic faith. We suggest the film "Cristiada" if you wish to learn more about this sad time.  

Despite what the media might portray, Mexico is safe for pilgrims so long as you use common sense and plan wisely. Group travel is especially safe. We hate to see people avoid Mexico when the trouble spots are far from those locations of interest to Catholics.

There literally hundred of places in Mexico of interest to Catholics.
Here are just a few of the more well-known ones:

Cacaxtla:   Saint Michael's Well

Mexico City:  Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe; Church of the Fifth Apparition, 
Church of the Holy Family (Blessed Miguel Pro), Mexico City Cathedral

Puebla:    Incorrupt body of Bl. Sebastian of Aparicio
