We went because it was the oldest one in town. It was very small and not much on display there. We were out of there in 30 mins. It was pretty much a square courtyard and that was it. Abit disappointed.

This was a moderately interesting place to pass the time when we ran out of things to do in Dubrovnik. Some interesting history and paintings. Church was being restored, so it was interesting to see the process, but generally it was underwhelming.

There's a plethora of beautiful historical and architecturally important buildings in Dubrovnik but this struck me the most. Exquisite courtyard and attached church and site of the oldest pharmacy in Europe with tonnes of old parchments in and a missile hole from the bombing in...More

I did not go inside the monastery last time I visited because I only got half a day so I was not aware of their opening hours. I checked on the net for you and apparently it is open from 9am to 6pm (5pm in the winter). I... More
