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.

A small charge of 7 kuna (about 70p) each for entry. There are some items of interest but close up access is forbidden. Its very quiet and a nice place to rest away from the bustle of the nearby shops and tourists.

This sight is easy to miss though not far from the ampi theatre, but worth a quiet moment of reflection. If you ask for the pizza restaurant called Jupiter it is just a few yards away on the opposite side of the road.

Small charge - 7 kuna. A pleasant cloister, fun art exhibition when we were there. Church had Gothic elements, and we found it a spiritual place to visit
