The Santo Domingo Church houses the famous Marian image of La Naval. Said to be miraculous, it was believed to have helped the Spanish Armada against foreign conquerors of the past including hostile Muslim pirates, the Dutch and the English.

In 1941, when her shrine in the old Sto. Domingo Church in Manila was bombed; La Naval was safely hidden for a time in the old church’s vault, and later transferred to the chapel of the University of Sto. Tomas. In 1952, the cornerstone was laid for a new shrine at the Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City and in 1954, La Naval was led in solemn procession by the Phillippines hierarchy, public officials, priests, nuns, and thousands of devotees to her new home. This shrine was declared by the Philippine bishops as the national shrine of the Queen of the Holy Rosary of the Philippines. ” nate0924
