Tvrdos Monastery, Trebinje

(4.5/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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 had a private tour from one of the munks. He showed us their winary, their garden and of course the church. A place to relax on and switch off.  more »
  • Good place for any age and ... It's not just the monastery is a park and a place where you can try different wines and liqueurs local spill! And yet this place is on the Bank of the River-very picturesque! Recommend!
