Regarding Meeting of Juan Diego and Archbishop Zumárraga. The Guadalupan tradition is that the Virgin Mary appeared to the indigenous man Juan Diego on three separate occasions. As a proof of her visit it is said that she created an image on his large poncho (the tilma) mentioned. The meeting here described on the marker was where Juan Diego presented the tilma with the image to the Archbishop Zumárraga. This event is central to understanding the post-Conquest history of Mexico.
