a calm and spiritual place in the middle of a living city, hidden in a small street right in the city centre. you have to search a little bit. you can enter inside both the churh and the monastery courtyard.

Lovely church and monastery. Went there to make a guest appearence with my choir during a mass. Full house and a nice mass with lots of music and friendliness.

We were technically lost and so wondering around the streets in Pula. we found this church by accident as we thought it was in another location (bad map-reading skills) and it was worth the discovery. it's full of histroy and such a delightful sight

Beautiful church up the hill a bit. Its a church of historic significance so worth a look . We looked at the outside and admired the rustic exterior then found peace in the interior . Some interesting icons and art inside.

Nothing special, did not enter monastery, but interesting architecture outside. Time to catch your breath before continuing up to top of Pula.

Beautiful architecture when viewed from outside. Didn't go inside as there was a mass being held. I hope to come back again to see the interior.

We actually didn't enter the monastery, but we passed by and got intrigued by the monument. Hopefully we'll come back to Pula to check out the inside.

One of (if not the 1st) church of the Franciscan order. Austere yet powerful, very special place for those of faith -- and maybe for those of different beliefs.
