4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
Sitting just a short walk from the bustle of Hvar's main square, Franciscan Monastery holds a rich collection of museum exhibits and art in a peaceful seaside setting. Browse the collection of Greek, Roman, and Venetian coins, check out the 16th-century Ptomely's Atlas, and gaze at the grand and detailed 2 x 8 m (6.5 x 26 ft) depiction of the Last Supper from the same period. In the monastery garden, a 300-year-old Cypress tree provides respite from the often-intense Adriatic sun. Our Hvar itinerary builder makes visiting Franciscan Monastery and other Hvar attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • If you are on the island of Hvar, do a short tour through this monastery. Nothing really special, but the place is full of charm. The last supper, which is at the entrance merit the glance, as well as the small adjoining room containing an interesting collection of old coins and amphorae. In the garden at the back, a very pretty sight, and especially old tree of 500 years to the original branches!
