Altar of Our Lady
It is dedicated in a special manner to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. To indicate this specific preference, this altar is usually placed in the most prominent position in the church, i.e. at the right (gospel) side of the main altar.
In general it signifies any altar of which the Blessed Virgin is the titular.
