Crkva sv.Spasa, Dubrovnik

4.8
St. Saviour Church (Crkva sv. Spasa) is a small votive church located in Dubrovnik's Old Town. It is dedicated to Jesus Christ.
Following an earthquake on 17 May 1520, which killed about 20 people and damaged many buildings in the city, the local Senate which governed Dubrovnik Republic commissioned a new church as a sign of gratitude for sparing the city from even bigger destruction. The monumental inscription above the main entrance on the front facade testifies to this. Designed by the architect Petar Andrijić from Korčula, construction started in 1520 and the church was completed in 1528.
The church has one nave with a Gothic-cross-ribbed vault. The lateral windows are also Gothic with the typical pointed arches. Nevertheless, the main facade with the Renaissance elements on the portal and the three-leaf semicircular top as well as the semicircular apse reveal a recognizable Renaissance style.
In 1667 Dubrovnik was hit again by a disastrous earthquake which killed some 5,000 citizens and destroyed much of the city. However, St. Saviour Church withstood the disaster so it can be seen today in its original form, as a fine example of the town's Renaissance architecture.
Crkva sv.Spasa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Dubrovnik Edition.

  • It is located at the end of the stradum next to the entrance of the fortress visitors and in front of the fountain. Although it is clearly visible it seems almost hidden. It really deserves a visit as the church holds interesting works of art. Free admission.

  • Dedicated to San Salvador, this church is located in the inner part of the Pile, gate between the wall and the Franciscan monastery. Built in 1,528 in gratitude that in the earthquake of 1,520, suffered no damage in the city. The construction was very meticulous and organized by entrepreneurs and professionals of the city, with the aim of making it quality. In the earthquake of 1,667 did not suffer any damage. It was built in a Renaissance style in the area that is kept up to date. It is dedicated to exhibitions and concerts.

The monumental inscription above the main entrance on the front facade testifies to this. Designed by the architect Petar Andrijić, construction started in 1520 and the church was completed in 1528. The church has one nave with a Gothic cross vault. The lateral windows are also Gothic with the typical pointed arches. Nevertheless, the main facade with the renaissance elements on the portal.
  • Great old city. Steeped in history. Could spend days walking up and down the alleyways and walking about. Cobbled streets like gold marble. Amazing cafe lifestyle. Walk to the harbour. Go swimming. Visit a buzz bar. People watch the world go by. Dubrovnik has been a prominent Game of Thrones filming location since Season 2 and the Croatian city is a must visit for any Game of Thrones fan. After all Dubrovnik is King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms!
