Franciscan Monastery and Museum

In the 14th century, under the threat of war, the Franciscans were forced to move from Pile, which was outside the city, to the inside of the city. The construction of the monastery began in 1317 and was completed many years later. The church was destroyed in the Great Earthquake of 1667. The only element of the former building which has been preserved is the portal on the south wall. The church was reconstructed in the Baroque style. Inside it you can find the grave of Ivan Gundulić, a sculpture of the Virgin Mary cradling the body of her dead son, which dates back to 1498. This monastery is one of the most magnificent and largest Franciscan monasteries. The first document regarding the Dubrovnik Franciscans dates back to the 13th century, more precisely to 1235 and provides information about the Monastery of St. Thomas. As the city was threatened with war, a decision was made to demolish that monastery to prevent its use by the enemy in the eventual case that the city might be besieged. The cloister of the monastery was built by Mihoje Brajkov from Bare. It consists of two parts: the upper (Renaissance, cross-vaults and round arches) and lower (Romanesque-Gothic, ornamented hexastyles, rosettes and capitals in various forms) with a walkway and cross vaults. The monastery library was built in the 17th century and the theologian seminary was constructed in 1896. The monastery consists of 120 columns and 12 massive pilasters. In 1860, frescoes depicting the life of St. Francis were made. St. Francis’s face adorns the fountain in the central promenade. In the library of the museum you can see an array of corals, images by unknown masters and a relic of St. Ursula’s head from the 14th century.
