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.

  • The monastery is very close to the Centre, you can go on foot along the promenade. It is next to the sea, opposite a small beach of stones where one can soak up sun and take a dip in the Adriatic. The promenade along the waterfront is great. The entrance to the monastery is free and sometimes, if they're lucky they can come up with a concert (usually in the summer).

  • This visit is especially true for part of the site, the feet in the water. The place is quiet, away from all commotion, & not devoid of interest from the historical point of view. A cultural break nice, in the morning when the city wakes...

  • Facing the sea, the monastery carrying beauty in its architecture and great peace inside. A great place to reflect and thank the beauties of Croatia.
