The church of Saint-Ignatius in Dubrovnik – it’s been built as a baroque church on a hill with representative facade modeled on the church of Saint-Ignatius in Rome. The project was developed by Andrea Pozzo and the construction was finished in 1725. Illusionist baroque frescos inside with the scenes from life of Saint-Ignatius Loyola were painted by Gaetano Garcia. In 1885 an artificial cave was placed in the church, dedicated to the Lady of Lourdes and is one of the most ancient in Europe.
