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.

  • This is a beautiful church with an amazing view and there are plenty of restaurants near by. The photo opportunity outside the church is amazing. There is a bit of a walk up a beautiful set of stairs ...  more »
  • Climbed the stairs to the Baroque church of St. Ignatius. You can get in for free. Large, and the staff there was very good. A little dark inside, but I did want to see frescoes inside the train and bus stations, it is regrettable.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
