The restoration of this massive cathedral revealed architectural features that link the site to the 6th, 7th and 8th century. This evidence broadens the extensive history of Dubrovnik's urban evolution. Today the Baroque-style cathedral, Katedrala Uznesenje Marijina, built in 1713 by Andrea Buffalini, stands tall in the Marin Držić Square and is home to incredible paintings and relics from the 11th to 18th Century.
The magnificent Church of Saint Blaise as it stands today was constructed upon the designs of architect Marino Gropelli in 1715. The baroque church was built to replace the original Romanesque church after it was laid to waste by fire in 1706. The church is richly adorned with baroque ornamentation, sculptures and vivid paintings that pay homage to the city's patron saint. The carved marble alters are especially intricate and beautiful to behold. Of special note is a 15th-century, gilded silver statue of Saint Blaise with a model of the city, as it was before the great earthquake of 1667, in one hand. Although the statue itself is remarkable, it holds a special place in the hearts of Dubrovnik's people as the only statue to have survived the devastating fire that destroyed the original church and is considered by many to be miraculous. A visit to Dubrovnik is simply incomplete without a visit to this iconic landmark and tribute to the city's beloved patron saint.
