Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe
When I planned the trip to Mexico I have four major things that I wanted to do: visit the pyramids, jump in a cenote, go to a beach in the Yucatan peninsula, and make a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I managed to do the fourth one on my second day in Mexico City, when I took the trip that includes a visit to Tlalelolco, Tepeyac and Teotihuacan.

How to Get There
The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe is located in Tepeyac, in the borough of Madero near Mexico City. There are several tour companies in Mexico City that organizes trips to the Shrine, and I would recommend that instead of taking the public transportation on your own. Usually the trip here is paired with a trip to Teotihuacan. I paid around 480 Mexican pesos for the day trip that includes the Shrine and Teotihuacan.
