A beautiful, beautiful church. Unlike a lot of churches this one is light, bright, less foreboding but equally pretty and beautiful. I love the architecture, atmosphere and images in old churches, this place does not disappoint. The first time I went purely to take images but i returned a few days later simply to sit and be. I then found myself in the middle of a service which (despite not being religious myself) was very lovely to see. It can get quite crowded as it is small inside compared to most European churches that hold a similar main role in a town. This is typical of buildings in Dubrovnik Old Town, obviously due to the very limited space within the Walls. Their are hordes of people taking photographs (including me) and as such it is hard to soak up the true atmosphere at these times so I would recommend coming back early morning or later in the evening or when a service is on because its a lovely place to sit with yourself.
A beautiful simple church which while it's frequented more by tourists now you can tell it is being used still for its true purpose.
