It is located at the foot of the Tepeyac hill in the Gustavo A. Madero delegation of Mexico City. It belongs to the First Archdiocese of Mexico by way of the Vicar of Guadalupe, and is under the care of Monsignor Enrique Glennie Graue, whose title is General and Episcopal Vicar of Guadalupe and Rector of the Shrine.
