“Inward Looking”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Deeply peaceful place leaves you calmer whatever your religion ( I am Jewish). Walls keep out distractions of world for the time of your stay and the plants are Gods work even more than the religious objects, works of great beauty too.

“Monastery, Concert Venue”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

A small church on the shores of Hvar Town just 5 minutes walk out of the center. At night there can be some concerts here for classical and local music. The monastery is closed in the afternoon from 13:00: to I believe around 15:00

There is a small rock beach next to the location and some eateries if you hungry or are waiting for the monastery to open or even make a night of the concert as a location.


The interior of the monastery is not striking or unusual but the location next to the water is picture worthy. 10 minutes inside and wander around for a picture or two there is not much time needed here
