What you'll do

We will meet in Roma Norte at 12:00pm where the tour will begin with the history of Santa Muerte or in English "Holy Death" who is a female deity or folk saint in Mexican and Mexican-American folk Catholicism as we walk to the metro. It's approximately 15 minute walk. At 12:30 pm we will arrive at Mercado de Sonora to purchase our offerings to be given to the Holy Death Monument in Tepito. We will travel through the market and visit many vendors who sell offerings that are given to the shrine such as: flowers, incense, candles or perfumes and make a small purchase. The market also does a roaring trade in medicinal plants, and spiritual or occultist objects. The stalls are heavily stocked with Holy Death statues, depicting the saint in a broad range of different costumes and colors. We will travel through the market for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. At 1:30 pm we will make our way back to the metro and travel by for 15 minutes to Tepito and arrive at 2:00 pm At 2:00 pm we will exit the metro and walk for 10 minutes (approximately 4 blocks) to the First Monument of the Holy Death to give our offerings and participate in a pray in English to the Holy Death Saint. We will stay at the monument for approximately 30 minutes At 2:30 pm we will begin our walk back to the metro and return to where we started or you are welcome to take an Uber (at your cost) from the shrine.
