Basílica Colegiata de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato
Basílica Colegiata de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato Review
Painted in a striking yellow, the Basílica is an 18th-century baroque church that dominates Plaza de la Paz. Inside is Mexico's oldest Christian statue: a bejeweled 8th-century Virgin. The venerated figure was a gift from King Philip II of Spain in 1557. On the Friday preceding Good Friday, miners, accompanied by floats and mariachi bands, parade to the Basílica to pay homage to the Lady of Guanajuato.
