Tvrdos Monastery, Trebinje

4.6
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Trebinje
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.

    It's one of the most beautiful monasteries I have ever visited, and a great piece of Mediterranean Orthodoxy. The wine, as others have stated, is well renowned, but be sure to try the honey also. As f...  more »

    Wonderful place!

    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.

    Manastir je lijepo uredjen. Vinski podrum je odličan a cijeli kompleks odaje neku moćnu energiju.
