Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Dubrovnik

4.4
Modeled after the most ornate Italian churches of the era, Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola boasts some of the region's best-preserved Baroque architecture on one of the city's primary squares. Nestled within the city's warren of medieval streets and pathways, the church was completed in 1725. To reach the entrance, climb a long series of steps modeled after Rome's famous Spanish Steps. Be sure to look at the building's facade, which boasts decorative reliefs, columns, and pillars. Inside the church, explore the grand, vaulted interior with intricate frescoes and religious paintings surrounding the altar and stretching the length of the ceiling. Don't forget to wander through the different chapels and shrines surrounding the main nave. Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Dubrovnik Edition.

  • The Baroque church of St Ignatius of Loyola, built in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, is splendid for many reasons. First of all because, although in the center, it is in a secluded position, reachable by a steep staircase that disincentives many tourists to the ascent. The church overlooks a quiet and quiet square, out of the time and chaos of the lower city. Next door is the historic Raghole College. The complex reaches the acme of the Dalmatian baroque. The facade of the church, inspired by the Jesuit Roman church of the same name, resembles that of many Baroque churches in southern Italy. I entered last Sunday evening while Mass was taking place and saw it with the right lighting. At the bottom of the only aisle there is a completely frescoed apse where the tones of pink tiepolo and celestial, unique, excel. Like any baroque church it is full of details, especially in the facade, which is worth examining one by one.

  • It is not as easily accessible as the cathedral or church oo. Franciscans in Dubrovnik. To come here, you have to overcome some stairs, but it is worth it. Beautiful interior. In the back of the church, on the right side-the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.
