Santo Domingo Church in Cádiz, Spain

Iglesia de Santo Domingo was added to the Santo Domingo Monastery in 1666. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. That name for the Virgin Mary comes from the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 when Pope Pius V asked all to pray the rosary for a naval victory by the outnumbered Holy League against the Ottoman Empire. A shrine to El Rosario, one of the city’s patron saints, is inside this Catholic church.
