This is a good place for locals but is not an option for tourists or business persons because does't have anything special.

Impressive

This very large and impressive basilica dominates the town. Famous for housing the ‘black Christ’ it is very popular at the weekends. Very evident by the ‘snaking paths’ to keep everyone in line. To avoid the crowds go in the week. Interestingly there are framed gratitudes of personal miracles on the way in to see the alter.
There’s plenty of places in town for accommodation, food, drink and souvenirs.

If you like sacred art, and connect yourself with God, this is a good place for you. The town is small but it has charm due to The Basilica. Don’t visit in January or July because a lot of people comes to visit The Lord of Esquipulas ( Cristo Negro de Esquipulas)

For the one's intrested in architecture or on their own faith, this will be great. Clean bathrooms on the outside costs you only Q3 to use. Go to the market on the right side of the Basilica, not to the small one on the left car entrance. Cars are not allowed inside on weekends but there's a parkinglot 200ft away. Go to the gift shop, do not, Do Not, DO NOT visit on January (local festivity) you can't walk without hurting someone or yourself.

Miracles exist!
Nov 2017 • Family
Several members of our family took a pilgrimage to the Basilica de Esquipulas. It's moving to see the number of devotees who have experienced miraculous healings after visiting the basilica. There are trinkets that pay tribute to the miracles that have occurred framed throughout the church. Both touching and awe inspiring.

Beautiful cathedral. If you go to Esquipulas you need to go here and see the Black Christ. There is a great market next door.

Definitely a place to visit!
Feb 2017 • Family
Getting to visit Cristo Negro de Esquipulas is definitely an experience that you should not miss if you are in Esquipulas.
Not only the visit to the Basilica, which is by itself a very nice building, but having the chance to be very close to the sculpture and experience the devotion is really great.
Do not miss attending mass there and also getting the rosaries blessed outside the Basilica.
