Today, we are going to look at another beautiful church in Dubrovnik: the St. Ignatius church.Last week, for those that missed it, we discussed several details of the Dominican church.
The St. Ignatius church is a Jesuit church, built between 1667 and 1725 by architect Ignazzio Pozzo, and like most Jesuit churches of the period was modelled on the Gesù in Rome, the mother church of the Jesuits.

The St. Ignatius lies in the old city center of Dubrovnik, a small seaside city in the South of Croatia.The church lies a few meters off the main street the Stradun which makes is less crowded and certainly more peacefull. The couple below is walking down the baroque steps which were modelled on the Spanish steps in Rome.

Since the old town is car free, most brides choose to walk to the church, but it is also possible to ask a special permittion and have a car bring you as close as possible to the church.

Lets have a look at a few images of Daniel and Therese who got married in Dubrovnik on a warm September afternoon. In one of the images you will see a lady who gets a rosemary branch pinned on, it is a local Croatian tradition to have all guests receive a Rosemary branch.
