Island of Saint Mary

On the Island of Saint Mary is a Benedictine monastery which was built in the 12th century. Initially, the Benedictines built the monastery and later the church of St. Mary in the Romanesque style. During centuries, both objects changed their appearance under the influence of different styles, the Renaissance and Baroque. A defensive tower was built in the south-eastern corner. Many significant names, like Mavro Vetranović and Ignjat Đurđević, could be found among the Benedictines of the monastery. In the 14th century, the Benedictines gave up their authority over a part of the island. Therefore Mljet got a Statute and municipality in Babino Polje and was formally merged with the Republic of Dubrovnik. The monastery continued with its activities until 1809, when it was closed during the Napoleon government. In 1960, the monastery was converted into a hotel and was working until 1991. In 1998, the dilapidated monastery was given back to the Diocese of Dubrovnik.
