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.

    Nice Basilica, great faith of visitors you can breathe. It is careful and constant maintenance. If you want to participate in the activities of the virgen del Valle, set visit to near 8 September days. Surrounded by flowers and religious items for sale premises.

    Excellent place for those who believe in this part of the Catholic religion... The Church is highly conserved.

    The Basilica is one of the symbols of the State of Nueva Esparta, is the Temple of the Virgin of the Valley. It is a busy, by its religious and tourist attraction place. It is worth visiting it.
