Franciscan Monastery, Hvar
(4.4/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • We were only able to walk the grounds of the monastery because the church was locked. Nevertheless, the grounds were beautiful and we were happy to be able to see them.
