Tvrdos Monastery, Trebinje

(95+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Taste wines made in the centuries-long monastic tradition at Tvrdos Monastery. Legend has it that the 15th-century Orthodox monastery was constructed on the site of an earlier church that was erected by Roman Emperor Constantine and his mother, St. Helen. You can still see the fourth-century foundations of the ancient Roman church. The monastery houses a 15th-century stone cellar and a new, modern cellar. Try to recognize the traces of peaches, kiwi, and honey in white wines and cherries or figs in red wines. The monastery also treasures an important relic--the hand of an unknown saint, probably the queen mother of Serbian medieval kings Milutin and Dragutin.

  • We visited the wine cellar and tasted some excellent wine! The tour was pleasant, the guide was very nice and helpful. They charge 1.5 euros per glass of taste, we thought this is overpriced.  more »

  • Wonderful place!
  • Manastir je lijepo uredjen. Vinski podrum je odličan a cijeli kompleks odaje neku moćnu energiju.
  • Манастирски комплекс изгледа прелепо, нарочито првобитна црква са конаком и винским подрумом. Пре десетак година док још није било гужве, посетиоцима је био отворен простор око цркве и конака и, осим продавнице, није било других пратећих објеката. Посебну лепоту манастиру даје пространи врт,. Некада је ту био и сеник за одмор, са дивним погледом на Требишњицу.
  • Before a nice monastery.
