Imagine yourself back in time in the cloisters of this monastery. Today a place of serenity and greenery (at least when tour groups from cruise ships don't invade). Interesting displays to enjoy alongside the architecture.

Worth visiting for a few mins if you have it free as part of the Dubrovnik Card otherwise 50kn to enter. It's quite a small place just inside the Pile Gate entrance. Avoid going in at the same time as a group.

A beautiful church with a special organ. The paintings are very beautiful. The monastery also has a museum that deserves to be visited.

Lots of parking just outside the city walls but there are also lots of tourists. It may be more difficult to park than you might imagine so turn up early. Parking is also expensive. We took the road south which passes the... More
