Virgin of the Sea Church (Almeria)

Virgin of the Sea Church (Almeria)

The Virgin of the Sea Church is run by the Order of the Dominican, which is why it is also known as the Saint Dominic Church. The church suffered serious damage due to a fire during the Spanish Civil War, and was restored later.

Noteworthy is the image of the Virgin of the Sea, which appeared on the Torre Garcia Beach on December 21, 1502 and was officially proclaimed patroness saint of Almeria in the year 1806.
