Along the balustrade of the Dubrovnik Cathedral are numerous saint statues. On the right side of the façade are Saint Joseph carrying the Christ child and Saint Blaise holding a staff. Inside the church are relics of the city’s patron saint. These reliquaries are carried during an elaborate procession on February 3, the Feast Day of Saint Blaise. The two-day celebration called Festa svetoga Vlaha is marked by releasing white doves, ringing church bells, carrying flowing banners and people marching in period costumes.
