Franciscan Monastery - Review

The Franciscan Monks moved to Dubrovnik in the 13th century and quickly set up a monastery. However, when threatened by war, they demolished that one and built a better protected one next to the Pile Gate and St. Saviours Church. Though this new monastery was immediately functional, work on it’s construction continued for centuries to come. In 1317 though, when it was founded, they also founded a pharmacy that served the public, the poor and the monks themselves. This pharmacy became their main trade, and today it’s the third oldest pharmacy in the world. In the 17th century it was destroyed by an earthquake, after which it was reconstructed in baroque style. To see:

  • A monumental Gothic-Renaissance portal
  • A lovely late Romanesque cloister on the northern wall
  • A centuries old pharmacy
  • An old and incredibly rich library
  • A Franciscan Museum
