The monastery is not open to the public however it is free to stroll around the medieval garden which is quite nice. We did not eat there but the food seemed of good quality, very nice setting for a meal.

St. Lawrence Church and Monastery is ~100 m northeast of St. James Cathedral. The church is part of monastery complex founded in 1650 by Franciscan friars from the island of Visovac. The 18th century stone church is fairly simple in style, with a rectangular 17th century bell tower on one side. A small sculpture of St. Lawrence (1720) is in the pediment above the entrance. The main monastery building was Foscolo’s Palace (15th century), in floral Gothic style designed by Juraj Dalmatinac. Just west of the monastery along Kačićeva and up some steps is a hillside grotto containing a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes. In 2007 the overgrown monastery garden was restored as the Medieval Mediterranean Garden with a small cafe. There is a cross design for the pathways, a small centrally located water feature, low-growing plants are framed by boxtree hedges, and beautiful old roses scent the air. Four sections are filled with medicinal plants and herbs that the monks would have used. I found the garden a peaceful place to contemplate the centuries of good works and spiritual power ongoing in the monastery. Aside from daily religious services, the church is generally not open to the public, except by prior arrangement. However, the garden is open from 9am -11pm May-Oct (reduced hours Nov-Apr) with an entry fee of 15 kuna (children 10 kuna).

Came across the gardens and cafe as we ambled around the narrow streets and sat and enjoyed a coffee and sandwich in the peaceful surroundings
