The article traces the history of the Volcassio family estate in medieval Dubrovnik. This noble family was among the greatest urban property owners, its members participating actively in the political and economic activities of the city. The estates of Vukas Ivanić, his sons Pasko and Damjan Volcassio have been identified along with those of other family members, all located mainly in the suburb of St Blaise (later centre of the town), which include the plots of land used for housing or rent. By grounding the research on a wealth of original documents entered into the computer data base, the authors analyse the positioning and expansion of the estates of the Volcassio family with regard to the legal regulation, social conditions and urban communal development which peaked in the second half of the thirteenth century. The reconstruction of the Volcassio family estate has significantly contributed to the ubication of certain buildings in the burgus and overall analysis of the urban fabric of the time.
