|About these ratings|
Built in the 15th century, the Franciscan Monastery is now a site of quiet and relaxation for travelers of all types. This walled-in complex possesses an incredible view of the harbor and the Pakleni Islands, allowing the Adriatic paradise to unfold before your eyes. Pay particular attention to the artwork; throughout the complex and in its museum there is an impressive collection of Venetian paintings.
On the bay of Kriza just south of Hvar Town, the Renaissance structure has a beautiful tower and rectory to signal weary sailors (or lost tourists). Admission costs about 15 HRK (or about $3 USD). The facilities are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., but only June through September.
