“Italianate Church in the heart of Dubrovnik”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

The title says it all really, the church is one of the more highly decorated churches that we visited in Dubrovnik. It also contains (purportedly) the oldest grotto in celebration of Lourdes.

Some lovely photos can be taken inside and entrance is free.

“Well worth climbing those steps!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

It was really the steps which attracted us - and what a find at the top! This Jesuit church is incredible inside with some amazing frescos in the dome, behind the altar and down each side. There is also a replica of the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. Delightful.

“church”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Dont let the outside appearance put you off. the wow factor when you enter is something else!. the alter is something to behold as is the grotto to Our lady of Lourdes. The down side is the steps to get up to the church which may put some off going up to the church,which would be a shame to miss.

“Quite amazing art”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

On top of the hill close to the sea - this place is well the climb to see the art especially behind the altar and right up to the roof.

“unbelieveable a must see”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

like all the churches in dubrovnik this is a work of art. when you're here you can sense the atmosphere that must have prevailed during the war and the other wars in antiqueity
