St. Ignatius Church

Capacity: 300

Venue Fee: from 300€

The baroque stairs connecting Gundulić Square with another square named after the great Dubrovnik physicist Ruđer Bošković are reminiscent of some etymologists who believe that the word baroque originated from the word shell.

The Church of St. Ignatius—or the Jesuits, as the people of Dubrovnik call it—is the work of the famed Jesuit architect and painter Ignazio Pozzo, who worked on the church from 1699 to 1703.

This complex is considered to be the finest baroque set of buildings in Dubrovnik and, according to many, in all of Dalmatia. It is thus not surprising that theater directors at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival often use this venue as an open-air stage.
