It's easy to find the monumental Baroque Staircase that leads up to the Poljana Ruđera Boškovića Square where the Church of St Ignatius and Dubrovnik's well-known Jesuit College, are located. This urban complex is considered by many to be the most representative Baroque example in Dubrovnik and the whole Croatian coast. In 1555, Beccaddeli, the bishop of Dubrovnik, asked the... More

After touring the city walls, we headed over to see St. Ignatius Church. It's just past Gundulic Square, up the "Walk of Atonement" Stairs from Game of Thrones. The interior of the church was just beautiful. And unlike the rest of Dubrovnik that was incredibly crowded, it was quiet in here with just a few other tourists. The ceiling above... More

An amazingly beautiful church. Incredible altars, art, architecture, Just humbling to think they built this with a pendulum and a lot of blood sweat and tears.

From Gundulic Square with its wide Baroque staircase leading up to Boskovic Square, you see the beautiful Baroque Jesuit church, which was built at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century...worth a visit.

It's a smaller church some some of the biggies throughout Europe but it is very beautiful. The painted ceiling is the highlight but there are lots of alcoves that have been decorated very nice as well. It won't take long to see and it was very quiet and uncrowded when we went. (Though it is off season)

Tucked away from the main thoroughfare of the city we came across this magnificent but simple church quite by accident. We noticed some pretty steps and wondered where they lead to. A lovely quiet piazza with a beautiful church set to the side of it. It was a Saturday evening and looked like a service as there was a young... More

Myself and husband visited this church. We had lost our way in this beautiful city and were on our way back to the Main gate. This church is at the top of another set of steps, I personally was drawn to this rather large building, not as elaborate as the other religious buildings. I entered to find the most tranquil...

This is by far the most stunning church in all of Dubrovnik and certainly one of the most beautiful on the whole of the Dalmatian coast. The art work is breathtaking. However, it is the curved back wall of the main alter that simply draws you in. The concave wall adds this three dimensional aspect that makes you feel that... More

This is a lovely old church in the old town. It is a peaceful place to sit or to pray if that is your wish. There is nothing too ornate or fancy about it. Outside their are curved stairs leading down to the street or a small narrow street in the opposite direction.
