The culture of Mexico reflects the complexity of Mexico's history through the blending of pre-Hispanic Meso civilizations and the culture of Spain, imparted during Spain's 300-year colonization of Mexico. With this colonization, Roman Catholicism was established as the dominant religion of Mexico. There was a fusion of different traditions, notable in the widespread veneration of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who was an apparition of the Virgin Mary.
