Our OC-Travel group had Mass here. It was splendid.
Afterwards, the sacristan allowed us to ascent behind the altar to see the miracle up close.

This is a re-creation, constructed in the same shipyard in Barcelona.
The Battle of Lepanto in 1571 saw Juan of Austria's fleet of the Holy League, an alliance of Christian powers of the Mediterranean, decisively defeat the Islamist Turk in the largest naval battle in the history of warfare.
A breathtaking sight to behold.
