St. Saviour Church (Crkva Svetog Spasa)

St. Saviour Church (Crkva Svetog Spasa) was built in 1520 s immediately after the earth quake in Dubrovnik in gratitude that the town had been spared from destruction. It is a single nave building with a Gothic-cross-ribbed vault, considered to be the first comprehensive Renaissance style building in Dubrovnik,  designed and built by Korcula‘s  master builders Brothers Andrijic, who also built Korcula’s Cathedral. The church has survived throughout the history to nowadays, almost intact. Currently, this lovely building is used as exhibition space as well as classical music venue. A beautiful example of early Renaissance architecture. Have a look at the photos:
