Religious Images | The Virgin of Guadalupe and the pilgrimage to Basilica, expressions of the popular religious devotion in Mexico City.

The pilgrim to the Basilica de Guadalupe during the night of December 11th and some images of the Virgin of Guadalupe along the Insurgentes Avenue.

During the night of December 11th thousands of people from different points of Mexico City and other states go on a pilgrimage to the Basilica de Guadalupe, in the north of the city's urban area. The pilgrims walk together for hours across the main avenues and during their route they carry multiple images of this colorful religious representation. They also pass through many places ?gardens, parks, pantheons and streets- where there are altars to the Virgin. After walking all the night, they arrive in the morning of December 12th at Basilica de Guadalupe and give thanks to Virgin for the diverse favors ?health, love, work, money- granted to them during the year. This is one of the ways in which the Mexican people express the religious fervor. These photos show pilgrims that on December 11th of 2009, took the Insurgentes Avenue, which crosses the city from the south to north as one of the biggest avenues. Also inlcuded are reflections of the images of Virgin of Guadalupe that are located along the sides and surroundings of the avenue.
