Church of St. Blaise Dome in Dubrovnik, Croatia

This is the magnificent dome crowning the Church of St. Blaise. Its Venetian Baroque style was designed in the early 18th century by Venetian architect Marino Gropelli. This is ironic because its namesake, St. Blaise who was martyred in 316 AD, appeared as a vison in 971 to warn the city of a pending Venetian attack. The Protector’s feast day of February 3 is a major celebration in Dubrovnik called Festa svetoga Vlaha.
