Basilica Virgen del Valle, Margarita Island

4.6
#1 of 134 in Sightseeing in Venezuela
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.
