“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

You have to pay to visit the very small monastery which you enter on the long flight of stairs to the left of the chapel (which is reached through steep steps and is only open during service). The entry fee is cheap (5 kuna I think). the most interesting part is the little museum they have which houses some quite nice paintings and interesting reliquaries including skulls.

If you were only going to visit one of the monasteries in Dubrovnik I would recommend for this one.

“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.

Beautifully kept, this treasure of history has many artifacts worth seeing to include one of the oldest pharmacies in the world.
