Church of Saint Blaise (Dubrovnik)



Description of the Church of Saint Blaise

Church of Saint Blaise is a Roman Catholic Church that was dedicated to the patron saint of the city. It was built in the 18th century. Building of the church is fairly small, but its beautiful Baroque architectural appearance makes it one of the most beautiful houses of prayer in Dubrovnik. It should be noted that the statue of Saint Blaise that stands over the main altar of the church was constructed in the 15th century. It holds a model of Dubrovnik before its destruction in 1667 by an earthquake. This is interesting source of information about appearance of the city before destruction. The best time to visit Dubrovnik and its churches is during large feast days and important Christian holidays.
