Mexico City, November 9, 2008--One of thousands of Aztec dancers at the Basilica of Guadalupe on Sunday performs during an annual pilgrimage. The site of the church was considered sacred by the Aztecs long before a Christian church was erected there.

The Aztecs ruled an empire in what is now central and southern Mexico in the 15th and16th centuries. (See "Aztec Pyramid, Elite Graves Unearthed in Mexico City" [January 4, 2008].)
