The narrator of “Tepeyac,” an unnamed person who describes the small store his Abuelito (grandfather) owns by the Hill of Tepeyac, a religious destination where it is believed by Catholics that Saint Juan Diego saw an apparition of the Virgen de Guadalupe (the Virgin Mary). One evening, the narrator comes to Abuelito’s shop and walks the old man home, passing through the familiar streets. The narrator then skips forward in time, describing his experience of returning to Tepeyac years later, when all of the landmarks and people have changed. The narrator proves himself to be a wistful, sentimental person by the fact that he is sadly reminiscent of the times he spent with his Abuelito and Abuelita in Tepeyac.
