The church of St. Francis in the cemetery
The church of St. Francis in the cemetery is a Franciscan church built in the late 15th century. The church contains elements of Gothic and the Renaissance, which is reflected in the appearance of the sanctuary and vaults. It is located outside the city walls, and on the place of the former monastery is a cemetery. Furthermore, coats of arms of noble families, such as Nimira, Cernotta, Scaffa, Galzigna and many others are carved on the walls. Also, the tombstones of famous Rab citizens are saved through the time. Among them is the tombstone of Fr. Matija Bosniaks, Spanish painter Juan Bosch and ship builder Mrganić, dating back to the 16th century.
