Basically all you get is the sculpture panels in the church and the cross, but Mestrovic's sculptures are stunning. If you are going to the Gallery (which is well worth it) then take this in too

You are meant to buy your ticket at the main gallery then come here. It is small, but the wood carving are great, the explanations made the experience even more enlightening.

Don't miss it if you bought the main house entrance ticket, as it's included! Stunning. Worth the 200m walk to the old cloister. His crucifix is ... well, see for yourself! The olive groves make for a great entrance way.
