Very small monastery but a beautiful courtyard inside. We went late morning and it was not too crowded. I would imagine it would be difficult if there was a tour there at the same time. The old and current pharmacies were very interesting as well....More

This was a moderately interesting place to pass the time when we ran out of things to do in Dubrovnik. Some interesting history and paintings. Church was being restored, so it was interesting to see the process, but generally it was underwhelming.

This monastery is very much like other ones we have seen. The small museum has a few interesting pieces. The art gallery is interesting and very cool. This makes it a nice break from the heat.

Parts of this are under construction and the church is closed. The chapel that I peered into was quite plain. The icons and religious artifacts in the museum though were quite good and I was able to leisurely move around a couple of tour groups...More

The people at the ticket desk have no information to hand out, but we enjoyed a half hour here with an interesting small museum, lovely central courtyard where we could sit and relax, and an adjoining old pharmacy (free to visit) - with the materials...More
