Franciscan Monastery, Hvar

4.3
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Hvar
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.

  • A beautiful Franciscan monastery from the 15th, with church and cloister, located near the sea. The Venetians have helped preserve it.

  • I visited just outside, because it was closed to visitation. Stay by the sea, at the end of the edge. Very beautiful architecture, leafy courtyard.

  • After visiting the fortress and wandering in the center for a couple hours, I decided to look for a place to take a break and this is the place I was looking for. The monastery is just a few minutes walk from the town center and a place to enjoy the serenity and avoid the crowd. Sitting in backyard and relaxing in the cool ocean breeze really takes the stress away.
  • Beutiful inside the Monastry.
  • Peaceful and a little bit less crowded then the rest of the Hvar...
  • It cost money to go inside, I think it was because of a consert. Pritty outside, even in the dark.
  • A nice place to visit. While you are at the beautiful but crowded bay you may drop in to a nice and quite church.
