Truth be told Dubrovnik is a bit short on great art and architecture (excepting its magnificent fortifications and a couple of buildings) This church is not a great example of Baroque but I found it more interesting than the Cathedral and it has a quirky grotto within. It is also en route to an extra-mural bar which everyone should visit so include the church on your trip.

The Jesuit church at the top of the stairs is an amazing sight - from the pyramids topping the facade corners to the amazing frescos lining the nave. The Saturday we visited they were in between weddings, so we cold freely visit and appreciate that this is a busy church with a lively congregation. The square in front of the church and the stairs leading to it make it a stand out in the Old Town!

One of the largest churches within the Old Town and not the easiest to find if you have a short period of time. Located within the southern part of town there are also quite a few steps to walk up if heading to it from the north. One we only saw very briefly but which was forever on the skyline of the views from the northern part of the Walls. Not easy to see from the other parts of the wall. Still this added to the overall historic feel of such a wonderful place.

There are some fabulous paintings and stain glass window scenes in this church. Quite a few steps to get up to it from one side but can access it via a restaurant if coming from a different side of Dubrovnik. Well worth a visit.

You will see many churches in the Old Town, some bigger than others, and this would be one of the bigger ones. Stunning grotto insde. Well worth a visit to get away from the heat and crowds a little bit.
