Here once stood the Santo Domingo Church and Convent of the Dominican Order. First built in 1588. Collapsed in 1589 due to poor foundations. Rebuilt in stone 1592. Burned in 1603. Constructed for the third time but destroyed in 1645 earthquake. Fourth church completed in 1692. Destroyed in 1863 earthquake. Fifth church inaugurated in 1868. Designed by first Filipino architect Felix Roxas Sr. in neo-Gothic design. Destroyed in 1941.

Housed in this church was the ivory image of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary (Nuestra Senora del Santissimo Rosario). Carved in 1593 as a gift of Gov. Gen. Luis Dasmarinas. Also known as Virgin of La Naval in honor of her divine intervention in the Spanish victory against the Dutch navy. Saved from World War II, the statue was re-enshrined in 1954 at the blessing of the sixth church in Quezon City.
