Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Dubrovnik-Neretva County / Dubrovnik / The Franciscan Church and Monastery
Featuring one of the oldest churches in Dubrovnik, ,The Franciscan Church and Monastery attracts tourists not only for its antique design and historical significance, but also its impressive library and pharmacy.

In accordance with the Franciscan rule that outlines taking care of sick members of the order, this church has an attached pharmacy that is quite well-known. It is the third-oldest functioning pharmacy in the world and has been partially transformed into a museum with exhibits about Franciscan medicine and the pharmacy itself. Finish off your visit here with a trip to the attached library, known as one of the richest in Croatia, it boasts an impressive collection of over 70,000 books. Students get in for half price.

The Franciscan Church and Monastery reviews
Like a lot of museums in Croatia, this one is tiny and overpriced. More annoying, the lady working the desk said the Dubrovnik card does not include this museum when the website clearly says it... more »
Church of St Francis. Nice place to rest a while out of the heat of the day. Very ornate organ. Plenty to admire here. more »
Beautiful and well-preserved monastery from the 14th century. It's a great respite from the hectic streets of Dubrovnik but makes for a quick visit as there is not a whole lot to see. As with many of the museums and attractions in Dubrovnik over the last few years (thanks to price increases), it's probably only worth stopping in if you have a vested interest in the architecture or history of the monastery, or if you have the Dubrovnik card and therefore free admission. I had the card and enjoyed the visit, but don't think it would have been worth the ticket price otherwise.
This hotel is excellent, nice breakfast buffet dinner and lunch, . Nice view of the sea and beach from your room and five minutes walk to the beach .it has everything you need. From the hotel two minutes walk to the bus stop to the old town in fact bus 6
