Stunning as the architecture of Dubrovnik is, I was shocked at the rampant commercialism of the Old Town. You quickly realise that there are no local businesses and everywhere is a bar, cafe, souvenir shop or even a Star Wars merchandise outlet. No kidding. That's part of why I appreciated this place so much. Finally, in entering this Baroque church... More

After ascending a flight of relatively steep stairs, one comes to a landing where the Baroque styled St. Ignatius Church is seated. It's belfry is said to house a bell casted in the 14th century, the oldest in Dubrovnik. It is nothing grand but worth taking a look.

The Church of St. Ignatius is not one of the top attractions of Dubrovnik. Its interior is intricate, but relatively simple when compared to the more grand Italian churches. The steps going to the church are quite steep. So why would one bother to even visit the church. First, this place was where the Walk of Shame episode of Queen... More

Happened to walk past this church on our way back from Bar Buza and the door was open at approx 19:45 on Saturday evening on our way for dinner. We just wanted to view the beautiful church inside but we're amazed to see a 10 piece all female choir singing the most beautiful and evocative songs - we stood and... More

So impressive. The attention to detail is phenomenal. We walked through the streets of the old town and we came across a few gems like this. You may feel that it's sometimes disrespectful to take photos inside a church, but how can you resist when it looks like this. Stunning.

Going from a busy touristic placa to a peace and calm vibe is very different, but pleasing. I am not religious but I can recommend you to atleast make a short visit.

This church radiates calmness on its own. It's simple from the outside,but has a nice vibe. On summer evenings,musicians play at the entrance.

You have to walk up a steep staircase to get to the church. Game of Thrones fans will recognise the stairs as the "stairs of atonement" or "walk of shame" in series 5 I believe? The church itself is located in a small square, it was very cool inside and peaceful. Not heavily decorated in glitz more understated Baroque.

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
