Within this monastery's solid stone walls is a gorgeous mid-14th-century cloister, a historic pharmacy and a small museum with a collection of relics and liturgical objects, including chalices, paintings, gold jewellery and pharmacy items such as laboratory gear and medical books. The remains of artillery that pierced the monastery walls during the 1990s war have been saved, too.

Surprised to pay to visit. Also not allowed to take photos. Where the Oldest Pharmacy is siutated.(a modern one is in situ) The cloisters reminded me of Salisbury Cathedral or the Monastery in Lisbon

Absolutely adore the monastery garden, a true oasis of tranquility in such an overcrowded city. Beautiful flora and architecture.

If you only go to one museum in Dubrovnik, this is the one to go to. Beautiful cloister and beautifully restored altar pieces, nicely presented.

Went here on May 9. Paid 30 kuna per adult. Did not tell us that the church was closed. Should have offered a discount price due to that. Walked through cloister and two rooms with paintings/artifacts. No photos.

These monks supposedly started the oldest monastery in Europe. You walk past that pharmacy as you walk in the monastery. It is still in operation today! And they have an original Rubens in their museum!

This is a delightful stop off from main stream Dubrovnik. Here in the cloister you have a peaceful garden where silence is honoured. There are seats to rest and pray. The museum is delightful tracing some of the history of Dubrovnik in its paintings and frescos. An hour will see you comfortably through it all. Presently we do not have... More

This place costs 30 kuna, which is inexpensive as far as Dubrovnik museums go these days. More significantly, it is free if you have the Dubrovnik Pass, so you might as well get one in my opinion. At the time of writing, the Rector's Palace is closed for renovations. Maybe this place is a reasonable subsitiute as it also has... More
