The buildings

The Lay Dominicans, sisters, and brethren, - members of the Dominican Family -, realized in the seven centuries of their pastoral, preaching, teaching and works of charity many buildings, like chapels, churches, hospitals, houses of education, monasteries, priories, schools and universities throughout the world.

Many post office departments issued stamps in honour of jubilees or to remember the history of the parishes. schools, colleges and universities.

In the following sites you will find a great number of these reminders of  the Dominican Heritage.
I have listed these activities by continents, - Africa,  America,  Asia,  Australia, Europe and the Near East -, and within the continents by the countries.
