Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Split-Dalmatia County / Hvar Island / Hvar / Franciscan Monastery
Sitting just a short walk from the bustle of Hvar's main square, Franciscan Monastery holds a rich collection of museum exhibits and art in a peaceful seaside setting. Browse the collection of Greek, Roman, and Venetian coins, check out the 16th-century Ptomely's Atlas, and gaze at the grand and detailed 2 x 8 m (6.5 x 26 ft) depiction of the Last Supper from the same period. In the monastery garden, a 300-year-old Cypress tree provides respite from the often-intense Adriatic sun.

Franciscan Monastery Reviews
修道院の中には入ってないけど、この辺りはサンセットを観る人達が座っている。フヴァルのフェリー乗り場から10分ぐらいなので気軽にこれる。ホテルのスタッフは城壁からのサンセットを勧めてたが、時間が無いので修道院でサンセットをながめた。 more »It's not in the monastery, but there are people sitting around here watching the sunset. It's about 10 minutes from the ferry terminal in Hvar, so feel free to do this. The hotel staff recommended sunset from the city walls, but we didn't have much time, so we looked at the sunset at the monastery.
Beautiful gulf with transparent water in front of a silent monastery. Romantic and pacefull place where to have a stop. more »
The church is a stunning landmark with an interesting interior. The museum is interesting with mostly nautical exhibits. The large painting of the Last Supper is an important work of Venetian art. There is also a small shaded garden with sea views. We had a long - and useful - conversation with the custodian.
Lovely little monastery in a stunning spot on your way out of town. Small museum and a few relics inside but not much else. Small, nice, but nothing spectacular pop in of passing, but don't go out of your way
