Pile Gate

The Pile Gate is the main access to the walled city of Dubrovnik. Built in 1537 on the western side of the walls, the Pile Gate or Pile Gate was for many years the only entrance to the Republic of Ragusa. The drawbridge that preceded the gate was closed every night so that no one could enter or leave the city.

Rector's Palace

The Rector's Palace (Knežev dvor) which was the seat of the government and the rector in the times when Dubrovnik was an independent republic and the spectacular Cathedral of Velika Gospa, which was built in 1192. The earthquakes in 1671 and 1713 completely destroyed it but it was rebuilt by an Italian architect. Inside one can admire an Assumption of the Virgin by Titian (1552) and a gold and silver reliquary of St. Blaise, and it can also be visited at night by candlelight.

Church of San Blas

The Church of St. Blaise is located in the touristy Plaza de la Luza in Dubrovnik, where it draws significant attention due to its ornate architectural style (Venetian Baroque), which contrasts with the Renaissance buildings that surround it. A place well worth knowing its history, since St. Blaise is the patron saint of the city.
