St. Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, also known as Juan Diego (1474–1548), was a Chichimec peasant and Marian visionary. He was granted apparitions of the Virgin Mary on four occasions in December 1531: three at the hill of Tepeyac and a fourth before don Juan de Zumárraga, then bishop of Mexico. The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, located at the foot of Tepeyac, houses the cloak (tilmahtli) that is said to be Juan Diego’s, and upon which the image of the Virgin has been miraculously impressed as proof of the authenticity of the apparitions.
