There are many stunning scenes to capture at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. From the pilgrims crawling on their knees in the plaza outside the church to the grandeur of the new basilica built in the 1970s, this historic site has plenty to offer when it comes to compelling visuals.

Martin de la Torre, who lives in Mexico City, recently photographed this statue of St. Michael, one of the Basilica's less familiar sites. He told TODAY.com that he had been on a "photo walk" with a friend in early January when the pair ventured to the top of Tepeyac Hill and found the striking statue.

De la Torre often visits the church for its "dramatic photography." To see more of his photos, visit his website.
