It is believed that the Virgin Mary appeared four times on what is now the site of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. It is the most visited Catholic shrine in the Americas.
The Capilla del Pocito was built on the site of what is believed to be her fourth appearance. Built in the 18th century the chapel represents some of the finest Baroque Mexican architecture.
Some of the world’s greatest architecture was built in the name of religion-temples, mosques, shrines and cathedrals. It’s easy to appreciate regardless of religious orientation or lack there of.
I don’t know the significance of the woman’s red clothing and wonder if she is a religious pilgrim or nun. If any of my readers do please let me know in the comments.
What is your favorite religious architecture?
