  • From the bowl, you can win the monastery along the sea by the beaches or take a quiet and shady Street under large pines. It is close to a nice abandoned hotel that was used to welcome refugees during the Kosovo war. We arrive at the monastery along the wall of the cemetery, materialized by a head of death that is watching us pass. The monastery of the Dominicans was founded in 1476. The location, the Rocky advance of Glavitsa, was chosen by the inhabitants of BOL. Closed to the visit, it houses a library containing rare books and manuscripts. It encompasses a small 12th century Church, our Lady of mercy. Nearby there is a cemetery whose construction began in 1828, when burials in churches were banned for sanitary reasons. Opposite the main gate is the vault of the Dominicans. You can go around the peninsula and have a view of the port of Bol, the island of Hvar or the beaches located on both sides. A nice walk when you want to relax, unpretentious.
