The main city wall is strengthened with three round and 14 quadratic towers, five towers of five angles, two fortifications and one big fort called Sv. Ivan. Of the towers the half-fort Bokar is one of the oldest preserved fortifications of this type in Europe. In Dubrovnik are also two independent fortresses, Revelin and Lovrijenac. The latter is situated on a sheer rock 46 m above the sea and serves as one of the most attractive open-air stages since the Dubrovnik Summer Festival were introduced. The main altar found in the baroque Cathedral which represents the polyptych Uzašašća Naše Gospe, was painted by Tizian. The custom house, the Sponza Palace, the church of St. Vlah, the city-hall, the Rector’s Palace, the Jewish ghetto, that exists in Dubrovnik since 1352, with the synagogue of the 15th century which is one of the oldest preserved synagogues in Southeast Europe, are examples of the very rich and interesting culture and history of Dubrovnik.

In 1441 Juraj Matvejev Dalmatinac, who studied arts in Venice, became the main constructor and went on to build the church in a late, floral Gothic style until his death in 1475. Nikola Firentinac went on to construct the cathedral in Renaissance style, completed the cupola and the façade and built the roof complex.
