Nice place to be. If you expect to see many artifacts like in big museums, you are in the wrong place. Here you can enjoy the amazing garden, the old pharmacy, the wall paintings and some old books. And by the entrance you can also...More

The Franciscan Monastery is well worth a half hour visit. Situated On Stradun in heart of Dubrovnik, you are sure to pass the doors of this venue and it is free with the Dubrovnik Card. The monastery has a beautiful courtyard with lovely cloisters and...More

There are better places to visit than a monastery. It is a typical monastery with historical statues but not super ornate as some monatery I've seen in the past

Lots of art treasures and one of the oldest working pharmacies in the world. Enjoyed hearing about the fighting during the conflict in the 1990's.

Feeling overwhelmed by the crowds and heat? Stop in here for a few minutes of calm and a stunning church.

We mistimed our visit to coincide with the arrival of a number of large groups. This made it difficult to see things but, more annoyingly, the guides spoke really loudly. The small garden was nice but otherwise our visit ended up being a waste of...More

Some nice architecture including spiralling pillars. My favourite of the Old Town churches. Just inside the Pile Gate, opposite the fountain.

This building has a museum about pharmacy which was very interesting with a range of displays. The building itself, and particularly the courtyard, was very beautiful. I recommend that you stop and have a look.

A quit, and beautiful monastry, worth a visit when you're in Dubronik. Takes a short time to see, but make sure you have bought the Dubrovnik Card (gives entrance to the walls, musea, and also here - includes also bustickets).

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
