Monastery of the Holy Cross and Museum
When visiting Krapanj, we recommend a tour of the monastery dedicated to the Holy Cross, but also the museum which is located within the monastery. On the place of the monastery of the Holy Cross a church was constructed in 1523 and in 1937 contributed to the today’s look of the monastery. In the monastery there are many valuable objects, such as “The Black Madonna on Throne” (Renaissance) and “The Last Supper” (the 16th century). In the monastery library there are 23 incunabulae and the Bible from 1474. It is believed that the monastery was dedicated to the Holy Cross in order to emphasize the connection with the mother Province of the Holy Cross.
