This is by far the most interesting of several churches in Dubrovnik, partly for its pharmacy (in continuous operation since 1317!). Before you go, get the Dubrovnik Card, as this is one of the sights included on it.

I love churches but for some reason this didnt do it for me. Maybe would've been better with a tour guide?

The interior columns make a great spot for a portrait--out of the sun and directional lighting. Enjoyed it.

Visited as part of a tour group. The monastery has lots of historical artifacts and a beautiful courtyard. A nice stop in a visit to old town.
