Basilica Virgen del Valle, Margarita Island

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Small and delicate in stature, Basilica Virgen del Valle exudes a warm, welcoming atmosphere inside. With its white steeples and ornate interior, the church remains a site of pilgrimage, where people come to honor Our Lady of the Valley (as the Virgin Mary is known in eastern Venezuela). Apart from service times, you can enter and explore the decor. Dress modestly out of respect for local custom. Outside, browse the market for locally handmade goods, food, or flowers and candles to offer in the church.

Gracias Virgencita del Valle, for taking care of me every day, by guide me on my way, give me health and fill me with happiness; ti and God I thank you for my life and every day I ask more and more forces to deal with the obstacles that cross my path!

  • Very good cared for and maintained, whenever I come to Margaret visited the Virgin (leaving the ferry to the basilica) is worth the visit. PS: the pies are great.
