The cathedral was built on the site of several former cathedrals, including 7th, 10th and 11th century buildings, and their 12th century successor in the Romanesque style. The money to build the basilica was partially contributed by the English king Richard the Lion Heart, as a votive for having survived a shipwreck near the island of Lokrum in 1192 on his return from the Third Crusade.
This building was largely destroyed in the earthquake of 1667. The Senate of Dubrovnik appealed to the Italian architect Andrea Bufalini of Urbino, who sent a model for the new church in Baroque style with a nave, two aisles and a cuppola. Several other Italian architects including Francesco Cortese (present from 1669 until his death in 1670), Paolo Andreotti of Genoa (present 1671-1674), Pier Antonio Bazzi of Genoa (present 1677-78), and friar Tommaso Napoli of Palermo (present 1689 - 1700), all working with local and imported stonemasons, completed the Cathedral over the next three decades. Napoli made several crucial changes to the original plans including the use of a cross vault and the opening of large thermal windows at the upper level. This gives the whole interior a lighter and brighter feel. The style of the Cathedral is in keeping with the esthetics of Roman Baroque architecture as practiced by Bernini, Carlo Fontana and their 17th century contemporaries. The construction began in 1673. The building was finished in 1713 by the Dubrovnik architect Ilija Katičić.
Cathedral Treasury Reviews
크로아티아의 성당들은 다른 유럽 성당에 비해 조금 규모가 작습니다. 그 중 두브로브니크는 제가 본 자그레브 성당중에서 큰 성당이었습니다. 안은 화려하지 않지만 단정하고 조용한 성당입니다. more »The churches in Croatia are a bit smaller than other European cathedrals. Dubrovnik is one of the largest churches in Zagreb. The inside is not flashy but it is a neat and quiet cathedral.

The main relics are the hand, leg and skull of St. Vlas, the patron saint of the city. They are decorated with gold ornaments. In addition, here you can see a fragment of the Cross of the Lord, as well as a golden font.
Loved this cathedral in the nineties and love it still. Beautiful inside and out.
Extremely interesting and beautiful, this is a great place to explore. We visited in Feb to avoid the crowds and were rewarded with quiet, clean place.
