Original Greek relief from 3rd century BC when Trogir was a under Greek rule, is exhibited here. Romanesque, baroque and gothic architecture all under one roof! Religious paintings, icons, statues from as far back as the 13th century. A great find!

Very well worth a visit to this monastery in the old town center of Trogir. While walking around in the narrow lanes, pop in to the quiet monastery.

Hidden treasure of artifacts from antiquity to the 18th century.The restoration of the paintings is remarkable. The collection of religious articles inspired the viewer to reflect and say a prayer. There is a lovely courtyard.

Nice little museum with some worthwhile artefacts, especially the Kairos - if you are into ancient antiques. A bit pricey at kn 30 but I guess the nuns need it to support the old building.
