‪When we tried to visit Orlando's Column it was wrapped in a protective cover, and the courtyard around it and Saint Blaise Church were surrounded by a decorative safety barrier. From what we could see they were replacing the old paving stones in front of the church and base of the Column.
Orlando's stone column was carved in the form of an ancient knight, with a small platform on top for public announcements in1418, by local sculptor Antun Dubrovčanin and Italian master sculptor Bonino di Milano.
Legend says that it was created to honour a 9th century knight called Orlando, who sailed into the city and saved it from a fifteen-month siege by the Saracens. But truthfully the Orlando, or Roland figure how he is called throughout Europe, was to show alliance to the Hungarian-Croatian King.
For many years the forearm of the statue was used as the standard measure of the Ragusan cubit, also as a place of public punishment.
Today it is the center piece for the Dubrovnik Summer Festival opening and closing ceremony, with banners flying high above the column.

TIP: When the repairs are finish, go really early to avoid all the cruise ship passengers to get tourist free photos.

‪We loved it since we are from Orlando but sadly its under construction. It is still really beautiful and stands tall in the square.‬

‪This iconic Column located at Luza Square in front of Sponza Palace in now celebrating special 600th year anniversary as symbol of freedom. The beautiful stone Column with image of a medieval knight is a source of inspiration for many ages. This was the area where festivities, official ceremonies like announcing edicts, folk performance were held. The forearm of the Knight was the official linear measure of the earlier Republic. As I was staying in one of the hotels on the bylane of Old Town, I could enjoy the grandeur of this place in late evening and early morning.‬

‪The 2nd of July , and still under cover (and renovations ?) . A bit disappointing , but the Luza square , St. Blaise Church , the Little Onoforio 's Fountain , the Bell/Clock Tower and Sponza Palace - do compensate .
Maybe on our next visit .‬

‪It looks boarded up. But with about 4ft square enclosure, it’s anyone’s guess if the structure is even there or if it was hauled away elsewhere. There’s no notice if and when it would come back,‬

‪This column is almost in the heart of the old town and visitors will surely not miss it no matter which way you go to. However, in our recent visit there, it was under renovation (or reconstruction) and so it was "wrapped" up with scaffolds and not able to see it and so I took the picture in front of the Church of St Blaise instead as the statue was in front of it!

Perhaps the statue should be much taller so that from afar, visitors will be able to see it clearly?‬

‪The iconic Orlando’s Column in the very heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik is currently under reconstruction. You can hardly see it as the stone pillar is enclosed with protective scaffolds.
However, you can get to know more info about Orlando’s column in one of the areas inside the Sponza Palace as there’s an exhibition being held.‬

‪This looked like an important statue, located near the city gate and the church of St Blaise, but for the most part, it seemed to be used as the universal meeting point for visitors and tours, so impossible to get a decent view... hey ho !‬

‪It is a small column but very nice way to mark an important space at the eastern entrance (clock tower) just in front of St Blaise‬

‪Orlando’s Column is part of Luza square at the end of Placa (Stradun) street near the City Bell Tower. This is the spot for public concerts and occasions. The form of an ancient knight – Orlando – is carved into the column. Orlando is said to have saved Dubrovnik from a Saracen siege during the crusades.‬
