Picturesque church
Jan. 2017 • Family
This is a beautiful church and it's worth a visit.
There are many places where the virgin is venerated, the most famous places are Margarita Island
In Venezuela, the Virgin is the patroness of eastern Venezuela. As part of the religious tradition of Venezuela, it is venerated in Isla Margarita. There is a celebration in her honor on 8 September in her sanctuary in Margarita Valley near Porlamar.
Her holy mantle didn't abandon Margarita people. In 1541, the island was suffering a very hard drought then the people decided to bring the Virgin in a procession. According to people believing, when they were in Asunción city a very heavy rain took place.
Unfortunately the commerce around the church is particularly annoying and it takes the charm from this beautiful church.

A beautiful church. A lot of people inside visiting the virgin. And plenty of commerce going on outside if you want to by some souvenirs this is the place.

Amazing spiritual place

One of Venezuela's top religious spots. You can buy flowers to leave to the virgin. In November in the anniversary of the Virgen del Valle there's a beautiful celebration with fireworks and religious singin.

Beautiful, well maintained, historic place of worship.
Please place this on your "To Do" list for Margarita. The church is really grand and a site to behold. The museum is well worth the visit.
Please respect the "No Photos" in the treasure room!

Basilica Virgen del Valle is a gothic church located in El Valle del Espíritu Santo town in Margarita Island. The architecture of this sumptuous building is a gem :) This is a mandatory stop to all those catholics who are visiting Margarita. Outside the church, you can find plenty of stalls where locals are selling religious crafts! Its a safe place and there is plenty of security in the surrounding areas.
