Basilica Virgen del Valle, Margarita Island

(4.6/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • The Basilica of the Virgin of the Valley is an of those things that not can leave of make to the arriving to the island. It is beautiful, special and although many vendors around there are no deterioration since it is normal for that to happen and more with the crisis in the country. There bought me my Virgin dressed in a beautiful well decorated fabric costume and I would like to one day be able to visit her the day of the Virgin.

  • 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.
