Orlando's Column

Orlando's Column was erected in 1418 in honor of the legendary Roland (Orlando) who never actually came to Dubrovnik. Nevertheless, his statue symbolized a free merchant state. For centuries the length of his forearm was the official measure. The Ragusan cubit measured 51.2 centimetres. Now, this statue, right in front of St Blaise church is a popular meeting place.
