The entrance gate of The Jesuit Church in Dubrovnik...

Like most Jesuit churches, it is built on the model of the Church of Gesù in Rome. This one was started around 1669 and finished about 1725. Dedicated to St. Ignatius it is the first Jesuit Church to have been founded outside of Rome. The interior decorations are some of the earliest Jesuit works of art in Europe. The front of the church is very elegant in baroque style. The church is best approached from the stairs (based on Rome's Spanish Steps) which lead up from the lower part of town.
