Fodor's Review

Painted in a striking marigold yellow, the 18th-century Basílica 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 lovely baroque temple to pay homage to the Lady of Guanajuato.
