The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin (Velika Gospa) in the Croatian Old City of Dubrovnik is an imposing Baroque Cathedral built after the 1667 earthquake.

The interior contains a number of notable paintings, including a large polyptych above the main altar depicting the Assumption of Our Lady (1552), attributed to Titian.

The cathedral also has a rich treasury that displays 138 valuable gold and silver reliquaries including the skull, arm, and leg of St. Blaise, all plated with gold.

The Old City of Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
