This is located after you enter the Pile Gate on the left side. For a fee, you can see the cloister and a little museum concerning its history of having a pharmacy. The Franciscans used to give medicine to the poor. There is still a functioning pharmacy. There isn't much to the museum but I loved the cloister. Its delicate... More

I'm really glad I went into the monastery. They courtyard is beautiful and a nice escape from the crowd. There is also a small museum with books, sheet music, and other items. I also think this is a great option if you'd like to see some history, but do not want to spend the time to visit the Rector's Palace.

Beautiful architecture as you'd expect in the Old Town and I felt it was a bit of respite from the hussle and bussle. The stonework details are really impressive

Quick look into a beautiful monastery with a lovely courtyard. The ticket doesn't let you see all of it so I wish I could have seen more.

You can only pay the entrance fee in cash : Kuna or Euro. When you enter you are immediately in the cloister which is beautiful with every column shaped differently and with a nice garden. The exhibition of the so called oldest pharmacy in the world is a joke. It is just a mixture of bits and pieces from one... More

This monastery, established in 1317, is an oasis of calm just off the Stradun, across from the Big Fountain of Onofrio and inside the entry to the Old City. The interior garden and cloisters offer shade and serenity. The exhibition is small but worth the visit, especially if you are interested in reliquaries. Here you will find reliquaries holding hands... More

Lovely enclosed garden. Old religious relics are rather macabre - saints body parts. Not something you see every day.

The Franciscan Monastery houses a museum where you can see original items from the pharmacy plus an extensive library with precious incunabula, manuscripts, a large collection of musical notations and a treasury of artworks.
