Overview

For almost four centuries Santo Domingo de Manila, the church and motherhouse of the Dominican Order, stood within the walls of Intramuros. Moved to this site after the destruction of original structure in World War II, Santo Domingo is best known as the home of a beautiful and richly robed image of the Virgin Mary called 'Nuestra Senora de La Naval' (Our Lady of La Naval). The centuries-old image is credited for having saved the city from an invasion by a Dutch armada in 1646. The yearly procession dedicated to the image is one of Manila's biggest religious festivals.
