What a beautiful church must be seen to admire this just from a brochure would be a great pity. Candles rather pricey though for two £1.50- we pay 25 pence at my church at home

Church of St. Ignatius is one of the most beautiful baroque churches in the region and beyond. A church care Jesuits . The church is the artificial cave dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. If you manage to arrive at the right time you might be lucky to hear the organ playing that sound divine .

The church was designed by the Roman architect Andrea Pozzo and is based on the church of St Ignatius in Rome. Its construction began in 1699 and was completed in 1725. Its a very peaceful and beautiful church. For me, the highlight is the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, one of the oldest grottoes built in Europe (1885).

A lovely early 18th century Jesuit church and a place of peace and quiet away from the heat and the crowds outside. The frescoes depicting scenes from the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola are well worth seeing. The impressive (and steep) steps leading up to the Church featured in Game of Thrones (Cersei’s naked Walk of Shame) which is... More

All the churches in Dubrovnik are reasonably small compared with their peers in other major European centres so don't get your expectations too high if you have toured some of the jewels in other capital cities. The architecture and stonework (in marble?) is eye catching and the paintings/frescos make this a worthwhile visit

This is a beautiful church that goes back to the 1700s. My wife and I celebrated mass in English here every Sunday at 11am. The father is very welcoming and there were around 40 parishioners attending this mass.
