Serra's 77th International Convention in Mexico City

 

 

One of the world's largest cities, and the most populous one in North America, Mexico City offers a wide variety of attractions, activities and experiences for all visitors to its vast expanse, with great ethnic, architectural, topographical and ecological diversity. It also presents a glimpse of the long and rich history of the Mexican capital, from pre-Hispanic times and the colonial era to contemporary life in a city that never ceases to surprise.

We invite you to visit Our Lady at her shrine at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, just over 5 miles away from the hotel. As a special highlight of our convention program, buses will take all convention attendees to Mass at the basilica on Friday, June 21.

Additionally, Mexico City is home to over 100 art galleries, dozens of theatres and concert  halls, and more than 150 museums -- the largest metropolitan concentration of museums in the world! These feature important works and exhibits representing Mexican history and culture; major artists from all over the world take their place alongside these as well. 

And if art and history are not really your thing, enjoy shopping or dining in exclusive areas. The opportunities for safe and exciting adventure are endless in Mexico City.

The Serrans of Mexico welcome you most warmly to this enchanting part of the world!
