The Basilica of St. Dominic

The Basilica of St. Dominic (or also known as the Basilica of Our Lady of Safe Havens and St. Dominic) is an old parish church of the Catholic Church and is administered by the Dominican Order. The church was founded in 1571. The church was dedicated to Our Lady of Safe Haven (as well as St. Dominic) because the great number of sailors used to go to the small chapel (that the Dominicans had built) in order to thank the Mother of God upon their safe return to harbour after long and dangerous sea voyages. The church was rebuilt in the Baroque style in 1815 and was elevated to the dignity of a Minor basilica in 1816.
