Virgin of Guadalupe Day

Event Details

December 12th:  The feast day for the Virgin of Guadalupe is a major religious holiday in México. The holiday honors the day in 1531, when a young man named Juan Diego was visited by an apparition of the Virgin Mary. She asked him to build a church in her honor on Cerro del Tepeyac, a hill in the northernmost part of what is now Mexico City. The church was built, and some 20 million people annually now visit the Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe. In Cabo San Lucas, parades are often held on this day. There is also a beautiful shrine at the Tropic of Cancer Monument near Santiago, and each year on the Day of the Virgin it’s a stop on a pilgrimmage that finishes in nearby Miraflores.
