From the Gundulić Square behind the cathedral, Baroque steps lead to a square in the upper part of the old town on which stands the Church of St. Ignace and the Collegium Ragusianum. I found this Baroque church much more beautiful than the nearby cathedral. I found not only its façade, but also its interior more interesting. Paintings depict scenes... More

This church is located on the southern side of the old town and is dedicated to St Ignatius of Loyola the founder of the Jesuits. It is very ornate and quite beautiful even if you're not religious.

I visited for Mass and stayed for Over an hour. The sculptures are easily viewed., the frescos are wonderful. There is not a fee to visit this Church. Just take a seat , observe and enjoy.

This church is part of a complex in the old town, which adds a Jesuit College , dating from the early 16th century. Shortly after the start of its construction happened the great earthquake of 1667 - which practically razed the entire city - it is a magnificent example of Baroque style, located near the Gundulic square, on top of...

Small but lovely church with some lovely paintings, especially the dome over the alter. We were dining on the same square and saw a kitten and it's mother go in, so we only went in to follow them. We never saw them in there but instead were awed by the church itself.

from the outside looks like a building site but once in the paintings and ceilings are really wonderful to look at Worth the 20 mins inside studying the walls and taking a rest from climbing the steps

As with most churches the entry is free but what was quite helpful was the notice at the side which explained all of the paintings so that you could appreciate what they were depicting.

This is a beautiful church - kinda out of the way, up on a hill. The colors are fantastic. Worth a visit.
