History of the ancient church in Dubrovnik
The church was built at the beginning of the 18th century as part of the plan to build a Jesuit college. This was first thought of in 1653, and the plan was to tear down several houses. This work had already started when the Great Earthquake of 1667 stopped it, and it didn't start up again until the end of the century. Ignazio Pozzo, a Jesuit architect and painter was given the job of designing the church in 1699. The plans for the church were finished in 1702. The building wasn't supposed to be finished until 1725.
The church's interior has a single nave with side chapels and a semicircular apse with beautiful Baroque frescoes that show the life of St. Ignacio Loyola (1491–1556), the founder of the Jesuit monastic order, which was approved as a Roman Catholic religious order in 1540. Gaetano Garcia was also the artist who made these frescoes.
