[Chiesa San Nicoló delle Vigne]—Basilica di San Domenico

Bologna, Emilia-Romagna Italy

Roman Catholic

St. Dominic was buried in the church in 1221. In the same year work was begun on building a new, larger church on the site. Sometime between 1219 and 1243 the church and convent of Saint Nicholas were enlarged and rededicated to St. Dominic. It is the home of the Dominican order and in 1220-21 St. Dominic presided over the first two chapters, defining the order.
