This is a must to see the ancient cypresss tree,the wonderful treasury and the large painting of the Last Supper. The chapel is a gem also. The location of the monastery is delightful.

Nothing you haven't already seen, but worth a stop anyway. It's along the way and offers good photo opportunities.

Sits adjacent to and overlooking the bay and small pebble beach. Nicely lit up at night and used as a venue for small concerts, great place to chill and escape the midday sun in the shade provided by a number of trees at the front of the church.

Deeply peaceful place leaves you calmer whatever your religion ( I am Jewish). Walls keep out distractions of world for the time of your stay and the plants are Gods work even more than the religious objects, works of great beauty too.

A small church on the shores of Hvar Town just 5 minutes walk out of the center. At night there can be some concerts here for classical and local music. The monastery is closed in the afternoon from 13:00: to I believe around 15:00 There is a small rock beach next to the location and some eateries if you hungry... More

Monastery with a beautiful church, within inner courtyard with a well where concerts take place during summer, museum with collections of Roma Greek and Venetians coins, old amphoras, more than 300old cypress tree and magnificent painting of the Last Supper. A must see place in Hvar!
