  • On our Christian pilgrimage tours we not only combine the best elements of an organised tour, visiting the major places of interest at your destination in the company of other Christian pilgrims, but it is also a journey of discovery.

    While you will have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the saints, early Christians and pilgrims, visiting magnificent churches and places of miracles or other religious significance, you will also visit the major places of general touring interest.

    On tour you have the chance to meet new people and have the space to relax and reflect. The tour pace caters for all levels of fitness and involvement – you can do as much, or as little - as you wish.

    Guadalupe, Mexico and Riviera Maya Pilgrimage tour

     

    Day 1: Guadalupe

    After breakfast, we travel by way of the Plaza of the Three Cultures, and make our way to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Along the way, you will be enchanted by the blending of pre-Hispanic and Hispanic cultures. We arrive at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Americas. After celebrating Mass, we have time to take in the brilliantly coloured, modern Basilica dedicated in 1976. Join with other pilgrims, as you kneel before the altar displaying the astounding “Tilma”, the sackcloth bearing the image of the Holy Virgin. Continue to San Juan Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before lunch nearby. This afternoon, we have a guided tour of the Archaeological zone, visiting the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and local arts and crafts markets. Return to your Hotel in time for dinner and overnight.

It was there that St. Michael directed him to the Grotto and to a well of miraculous curative waters (bring an empty small bottle to collect some miraculous water). After lunch we proceed to Puebla to see St. Dominic's Church and the magnificent Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary, with it's most famous scalloped gold leaf walls and ceilings.
