This parochial church, dedicated to two physician-saints, the brothers Ss.Cosmo and Damian, is built below Dovac, at the place since ancient times used by the people of Lastovo as the meeting place , as the village square. The first church, the traces of which are lost, was firstly enlarged in the second half of the 15th century by the builders of Lastovo,Dubrovnik and Korčulas certified by the inscription stating the builder’s name and the year, cut in two church semi-piers: “Built by Radosan in May of 1473”. The facade of the new, single-nave, church was topped with a triple bell cot, whereas at its main altar was the paintings of St.Blaise and the Ss.Cosmo and Damian.
Mjesto Lastovo je staro srednjovjekovno naselje sa dugom i zanimljivom poviješću, amfiteatralnog oblika, okruženo brdima. U mjestu Lastovu se mogu pronaći prekrasne obiteljske kuće iz 15. i 16. stoljeća, koje krase bogato ukrašeni "fumari" (dimnjaci) i lastovski sulari koji su postali zaštitni znak Lastova. Lastovske skalinade (kamene stepenice) koje obavijaju staru jezgru oko crkve i šire, te lastovski dimnjaci daju poseban mediteranski ugođaj, iako Lastovo nije smješteno uz more nego u samom srcu otoka.
