St. Saviour Church, Dubrovnik


St. Saviour Church (Croatian: 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.
