Church and hill of the Virgin of Guadalupe
photos by Don and Lois Porter

The Guadalupe hill is paired with El Cerrito to form two of the best-known landmarks of San Cristóbal. The church and garden are devoted to the Virgin of Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico. The steps leading up the hill to the front of the church are a continuation of the main east-west street Real Guadalupe.
