We were here on 16 Nov 2016.
We were fortunate to visit this small church just when a specially-arranged mass was to begin for a group of Italian tourists. (Specially-arranged mass as we saw their own Italian tour group members did the First and Second Readings from the Bible, and also led the congregation in the hymns.)
Church was illuminated...
Saint Blaise is the patron saint of Dubrovnik and the Church of Saint Blaise has a special place in Dubrovnik. It's in the centre of everything, on main stradun. It has a serene feel inside and welcoming feel outside. People often congregate on the front steps.
When walking the streets of Dubrovnik, you will see this wonderful piece of art! I will be 100% honest, I didnt go inside! But it was sure a sight to see from the outside. Make sure you stop by to gaze at all the details!
The Church of St. Blaise is a Baroque church in Dubrovnik and one of the city's major sights, it was built in 1715 by the Venetian architect and sculptor Marino Gropelli on the foundations of the badly damaged Romanesque medieval church.
The splendid Baroque façade rises from the main square at one end of the Placa. The church is set up on a platform and is reached by a series of steps that many use for a resting place. The top of the church supports a figure of St. Blaise holding a model of pre-earthquake Dubrovnik.
Inside is a bright white...
