Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe

 Basílica MenorSantuario de Nuestra Señora de GuadalupeLa ciudad de San Luis Potosí siempre ha sido de tradición Guadalupana. Hacia 1656 existía una ermita dedicada a la Virgen de Guadalupe, cuyos muros aún se pueden observar en la parte trasera de la actual Basílica. En 1737 la ciudad juró a
la Virgen como Patrona de Aguas, Minas y Comercio. En 1772 se comenzó a construir el Santuario a partir del diseño de Felipe Cleere, tesorero de la Real Caja, y se terminó en 1800. Se dice que el Cura Don Miguel Hidalgo ofició misa aqui. En 1865 fue ocupado por los franceses como cuartel, y más tarde como bodega por el gobierno. En 1871 se rescató y se inició la restauración del altar, consagrándolo en 1903. Más tarde fue elevado al grado de Basílica Menor.English translation:Minor BasilicaSanctuary of Our Lady of GuadalupeThe city of San Luis Potosí has always had a Guadalupana tradition.
