This is a vibrant back packer and high end yacth town and so sadly this monastery is a bit neglected. To pay to get in yet very little to see is sad.

What a lovely place and we caught a concert here by some local folk group under a full moon and starlit sky.A memory to treasure and all for under €10 euro a head.The setting is wonderful and the stone work is heavenly.

25 kuna to enter. Nice last supper painting. Few old pots from shipwrecks. 500 year old tree. Nice little chapel with some nice art. Some other interesting artworks. Friendly lady. Has a sun clock in the courtyard that works so don't miss that.

Lovely and well preserved. Sadly the museum is only open in the morning from 10-12 and I couldn't make it in there. But you can walk into the church and look at the artifacts. Worth a stop if you can make it, won't take more than 10 mins to see it. As added incentive, there is a crepe man outside who makes the best crepes for 15 kuna.
