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.

Avery nice spot to stop and visit. Great view from the top. A beautiful sculpture and stages of the Calvary. I did not go inside, but would have if it were open. It was end of season.

Peaceful place on the waterfront, came a bit too late in the afternoon so didn't get a chance to see the garden but the monastery itself is a nice stop if you've got some spare time in Hvar
After visiting the fortress and wandering in the center for a couple hours, I decided to look for a place to take a break and this is the place I was looking for. The monastery is just a few minutes walk from the town center and a place to enjoy the serenity and avoid the crowd. Sitting in backyard and relaxing in the cool ocean breeze really takes the stress away.
