El Valle del Espíritu Santo

TIME : 2-19 16:01:50

Commonly called 'El Valle' (the Valley), this small town is Margarita's spiritual capital, home to the island's patroness, the miraculous Virgen del Valle. Her image, kept in the mock-Gothic church on the plaza, draws pilgrims from all around eastern Venezuela year-round - particularly on September 8, the Virgin's day. El Valle is the first Marian religious sanctuary in the Americas.
