Dubrovnik has had at least three cathedrals on the same site during its long history. The first was a Byzantine building dating from the 7th century; the second a Romanesque Cathedral destroyed by a great earthquake; and at present the beautiful Baroque structure completed in 1713. Within the current Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, there are several magnificent statues and paintings, including a work by Titian dating back to about 1552. As well as valuable art, the cathedral has stunning Baroque features as well as a treasury, filled with hundreds of relics, artefacts and religious icons.
