Church of the Holy Cross (Church of St. Anthony)
The church and monastery of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross were built in the mid-18th century in Baroque style. On the main altar there is a statue of the Mother of God, while the other altar is dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua. The feast of St. Anthony, the patron saint of small children, barren, healing vision and finding lost things, is celebrated on June 13th when there is a fair in Tvrđa at which various products are sold. The worship of St. Anthony dates back to the 17th century, and the number of his admirers increases every year. During the year, the faithful gather every Tuesday morning and evening to pray to St. Anthony.
