The Church of Holy Savior in Dubrovnik was built in the 16th century by Senate's order in gratitude of "mountain Srđ not falling down" during the great earthquake in 1520.

On the left, when one enters Stradun street (Placa) from Pile gate, there is the beautiful Renaissance church of the Holy Saviour (Sveti Spas), about which it is said that the women of Dubrovnik, both plebeian and patrician, carried the stones for its erection and strengthened the mortar with milk and egg whites. It was projected by the architect Petar Andrijić from the island Korčula. It is considered the first Renaissance building in Dubrovnik as other were built in the Gothic style.

In 1667. when the great earthquake struck Dubrovnik, the church was among few buildings left intact. Today, standing in it full glory, it hosts many classic concerts and recitals.
