(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Is the Baroque St. Ignatius Church in Rome was built on the model of Church. It would be best in Dubrovnik splendor, size, style, and facades. Was surprised at the beauty of the Interior. Coloured marble pillars and stone altar is frescoed ceilings, great. Here is the place you want to visit us. Was as photography is prohibited inside someone's word of mouth, but not like that. It is the wrong information. Photos & I also foreign tourists. Come take a picture, no display of photographs at the entrance to and inside the Church where the did so, with confidence.
