the church of the virgin of guadalupe is a sacred place for mexicans who come in droves from all over the country, some walking on their knees to be at the place of a supposed miracle some years back. they also seem to come to buy plastic tsotchkes and anime representations of mary and jesus. there are two churches here, an old one and a new modern one built in the fifties. there is a special image of the virgin mary at the back of the modern church, and horizontal conveyer belts/escalators carrying people back and forth in rows in front of it to give everyone a chance to see it. i took a nice video but i cant figure out how to upload it...
