Balmorhea: Shrine of Virgin of Guadalupe

Stone grotto with a statue of the Virgin Mary surrounded by candles and flowers

Don’t miss this small yet powerful shrine to the Virgin of Guadalupe along southbound Highway 17 in Balmorhea. Cared for by the nearby Christ the King Catholic Church, the modest shrine features an approximately three-foot-tall statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe within a semicircle of cemented creek rock from the surrounding area.
