The church is situated on Luza Square and is dedicated to the patron saint of Dubrovnik. The exterior is very attractive and the domed interior is richly decorated with numerous works of art.

I am not really into visiting churches and cathedrals, however as far as I am aware, it was a nice touch to Old Town and my friends lit candles and found it very tranquil.

I read that St Blaise was the patron saint of those with sore throats. I had such until I visited the church and then it was gone!

The splendid Baroque façade rises from the main square at one end of the Placa. The church is set up on a platform and is reached by a series of steps that many use for a resting place. The top of the church supports a figure of St. Blaise holding a model of pre-earthquake Dubrovnik. Inside is a bright white... More

St. Blaise Church was easy to find as it was located at the end of Stradun, on Luza Square, opposite the Roland Statue. The front of the church had a number of steps used by tourists as a resting place. At the very top of the church was a statue of St. Blaise with a gilded miter and, in his... More

St Blaise is the patron saint of Dubrovnik and his 18th century church stands at the harbour end of Stradun.It is usually very busy and is thronged with people when it is open. The ornate facade is striking as is the modern stained glass in the windows.

This is an interesting church, but many of the main features, including the relics of St. Blaise and some significant paintings, were unavailable due to renovation work underway.

St Blaise is the patron Saint of Dubrovnik and his statue (holding a model of the City) appears throughout the old city. St Blaise’s Church is in the main square of the old city and has a Baroque appearance. We found it to be closed for much of the time, but it is possible to slip in after services end.... More
