Thousands of pilgrims arrived at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City to celebrate the birthday of the Virgin of Guadalupe on Monday. The crowds carried flowers to the holy place, held placards depicting the Virgin of Guadalupe and danced, while some walked on their knees to show respect. People arrived from across the country to pay their tribute, many of them sleeping in tents outside the Basilica, as millions were expected to come to one of the most visited pilgrimage sites in the world.
