“early Baroque in 1600 - 64”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

The premises of the Franciscan monastery are situated behind the river. It was built in the style of the early Baroque in 1600 - 64 along with the neighbouring monastery Church of St. Anthony of Padua in 1672 - 77. The monastery and the church are simple buildings corresponding to the rules of the friary. The monastery, composed of three one-floor wings, adjoins to the church. There is a quadrature in the middle around which there is a cloister on the ground floor. The convent library with paintings on the ceiling and painted cabinet panels is one of the most well-preserved areas of the original monastery, which is now inhabited by the Order of the Barefooted Carmelites.
