“Not to be missed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very old canvasses and artefacs from the 14th and 15th centures are on display here. The museum houses an amazing display of votive jewellery. The most memorable painting is that of the Madonna with child.

“An oasis in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a lovely working monastery. Its cloisters are very peaceful. The church within it has interesting artworks. Interesting to both those who are catholic and to those who are not.

“A peaceful oasis in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

A beautiful church with a museum and a cloister garden. This was very peaceful and tranquil and I spent about two hours chilling out in the garden and visited the church three times and the museum twice. Another fascinating collection of gold and silver items made in Dubrovnik, manuscripts, pictures and jewellery.
