Before entering we had to stop and see the small stone gargoyle head protruding from the bottom left of the church’s front just left of the entrance. The head stands some half a meter above the ground, sticking out barely fifteen centimeters. Its top surface is polished like marble from all the hands that have stroked it. The wall above... More

It's a beautiful, serene place only a step away from the throngs of tourists. The cloister, the pharmacy and the photography exhibition are all worth a visit and are included in the Dubrovnik- 1-day -card.

We visited this on 16 Nov. If you have time, visit both the Franciscan Monastery and Church of St Blaise, if you only have time for one, choose Church of St Blaise (just our own personal opinion.) We read that this monastery took one century to build from the year 1317. According to the write-up, it was almost completely destroyed... More

The Franciscan Monastery is a large complex just inside the Pile Gate. The church itself is lovely but the highlight is probably the beautiful cloister.

Nothing grand like we were used to seeing in Italy but charming in a unique way, definitely worth visiting to help understand Croatian culture. Beautiful art and artifacts.

We decided to visit this after reading a lots of good trip advisor reviews. The current cost to get in is 30kn. The building is beautiful and the paintings in the arches are really beautiful. If visiting on a Sunday , you cannot purchase the products, which was a shame but totally understandable. Definitely worth a visit.

The visit only took around 20 minutes. It is nice to visit and luckily I read up on it before as nothing is in English in the Museum itself.

The Franciscan Church is located on the Stradun beside the St. Savior Church and opposite Ononfrio's fountain. The entry to this church is through the door that has an ornate stone carving of the pieta over it done by Petrovic in the late 1400's. This door is usually shut so visitors might think the door is locked. Using that door... More
