Basilica Virgen del Valle, Margarita Island

4.6
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. With our world travel planner, Margarita Island attractions like Basilica Virgen del Valle can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Whenever we are going to the island we make a visit to the virgen del valle. The surroundings of the Church are a little careless and increasingly find less souvenir sellers
