There are two views of the Catedral de Gaudalupe, Mexico's main pilgrimage site, where the Virgen de Guadalupe is venerated; one of these shows the cathedral situated within La Villa de Guadalupe, then a small town three miles northeast of the Zócalo, and now part of the greater metropolitan area. The avenida San Cosme, one of the entrances to the city in the mid-nineteenth century, is represented in two views. Images of outlying areas include a view of Texcoco, the Aztec site which Cortés used as a base for his operations against Mexico City, and the ruins of the Franciscan monastery at Tlalmanalco. There is also one view of Puebla, showing the church of Santo Domingo.
