The Basilica of Our Lady of Piat is located in the outskirts of the city of Piat in the Cagayan Province of the Philippines.

In 1604, Dominican Friars brought a statue of the Black Madonna known as "Our Lady of the Holy Rosary" to the Philippines. Some years later, on December 26, 1623, the statue was solemnly installed in a small chapel, on the feast day of Saint Stephen. The event made a big impression on people. Although the area was sparsely populated and had been evangelized less than 25 years before, a huge crowd came to attend.

Later, the statue of Our Lady of Piat was carried in procession to other cities in the Philippines. This is why she is also called Our Lady of the Visitation. Since the feast of the Visitation was celebrated on July 2 in the 17th century, this date still remains the feast day of the shrine.

Miraculous healings continue to occur to this day through the intercession of Our Lady of Piat.
