Dubrovnik

Across Bunic Square, located on the western side of the Cathedral, we see Gundulic Square and its wide Baroque staircase leading up to Boskovic Square where one of the most beautiful Baroque constructions in Dubrovnik was built, the Jesuit Church. Built at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century, the Church was based on a project by Italian architect Andrea Pozza, and has a beautiful Baroque portal and an impressive facade dominated the square. Significant pieces of art that decorate this Church were created by Gaetano Garcia, an Italian Baroque painter originally from Spain. He decorated the apses of the Church with scenes portraying the life of St. Ignacio Loyole, the founder of the Jesuit order. Next to this Church is a large building constructed for the renowned Dubrovnik University, Collegium Ragusnium, built based on the project by Ranji and Canalin. The wisest people in the Republic attended this University. The Roman builder Padalacqua created the project for the Baroque staircase, which perfectly compliments the Church.
