    This church dominates Boskovic Square which has several other beautiful baroque buildings. Construction began in 1653, but the 1667 earthquake interrupted the process. In 1725, the building was finished and is currently Dubrovnik's largest church, slightly larger than the Cathedral.
    The church has a bell from 1335 which is considered to be Dubrovnik's oldest preserved bell.

    The Jesuit Church

    This is one of the famous and popular if you can say so from the Churches of Dubrovnik. Built in the 17th century in a Roman style as far as I learnt it is located in the heart of the old city and you cannot miss this one.

    We visited two of Dubrovnik's churches, the Jesuit Church as well as the cathedral. For me the inside of the Jesuit church was much more impressive than the rather uninspiring cathedral interiour. What I enjoyed the most was the kitschy Lourdes crypt. Too bad I was not allowed to take pictures in here. Oh well, I guess you have to see it for yourself!

    Jezuite Street leads to the foot of the imposing staircase (modeled in 1738 on the 'Spanish Steps' in Rome) that mounts to Sv. Ignacija, the baroque church of the Jesuits, designed by A. Pozzo (1725) in imitation of the Gesu in Rome. The belfry boasts a bell cast in 1355. The focal point of the spacious interior is the apse painted by the Sicilian G. Garcia (1738).

    Jesuit Church in Dubrovnik

    The interior of the baroque style Jesuit Church on the east side of town is gorgeous. Beautiful paintings and frescoes line the walls and ceiling. Stunning marble columns with gold plated accents adorn the main chapel.

    Like the By the Jesuits staircase leading up to it, this church was built after the 1667 earthquake.

    Along the southern wall toward the western end of the Old Town, you'll find the oldest part of the city known as Pustijerna. Much of this ancient quarter survived the devastating earthquake of 1667 and as a result the buildings here have a more worn and rugged appearance.

    The Jesuit Church is located at the top of the Spanish Steps that lead up from Gunduliceva poljana. It is the city's largest church and I had the whole place to myself when I was there. It is modelled after the church of Gesu in Rome.
