  • Pula is built on a hill, of which their is this historic monastery..requires steps/road access to the foot of the monastery, plus another set of steps to the base hill  more »
  • The Church is situated on the hill overlooking the city. It usually enters the cloister, where you are prompted for a small contribution to the entrance (which is richly deserved by the value of what you see after). The cloister is the most interesting, 15th century, with a portico and loggia, and a stretch of Roman mosaic in the former Chapter House. The Church dates from 1314, in the Romanesque style but with some Gothic decorative elements already. The Interior was pretty dark, to appreciate the wooden polyptych altarpiece, 14th century.

  • The Church is located on the way to the fortress and is worth a visit. It is a Romanesque church with hints of Gothic Franciscan simplicity and modesty. The Church is made of carved stone. Next to the Church, the two-storey Monastery located also in Romanesque style. Each of the pillars in the charming cloister has a special shape in the upper part, while they are all the same on the ground floor. The facade of the church stands out through its entrance in marble and the beautiful rosette. In the Church itself impressed the Gothic presbytery with the arches. But the remarkable artwork in this church is the altarpiece made of wood behind the main altar. The Church is worth a visit. Is it worth a visit of the Church and monastery on the way to the fortress. A low entrance fee will be charged 9 kuna.
