Dubrovnik Cathedral, or the Church of the Assumption, is actually the third church built on the site. The first, a Byzantine-style building, was constructed in the 6th and 7th centuries, before a Romanesque church replaced it in the 12th century. Then, the 1667 earthquake wrecked the structure. The final incarnation assumed the Baroque fashion soon after. Aside from the architecture, the artwork is of particular note, which includes Titian's The Assumption at the main altar. For about 10 HRK (or about $2 USD), you can explore the treasury that has amassed a large collection of previous reliquaries and several body parts of St. Blaise. One IgoUgo user remarks, "The cathedral’s treasury is a true spectacle; and if you happen to have any parts of St. Blaise lying around at home, I urge you to donate them."

Located right next to the Rector's Palace in Old Town, the church welcomes visitors daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the exception of Sunday morning to observe mass. As mentioned, the treasury does charge a small entrance fee, but it is well worth the visit.
