The Church and the Franciscan Monastery
The Franciscan Monastery and the Church of St. Francis represent a valuable heritage of Rovinj. Their construction began in 1702. The church was completed in 1710. but dedicated only in 1750. Behind the main altar, there is a semicircular choir for the monks. To the left of the main altar, there is an entrance to the monastery and the sacristy, and on the right, the entrance to the chapel of the Immaculate Conception. There are other two altars in the nave of the church; one is dedicated to St. Peter of Alcantara, and the other to Jesus’ Crucifixion. The monastery functioned as a hospice until 1746. It was expanded in 1878, and the floor near the entrance gate contains the mosaic with the inscription ‘Pax et Bonum’. Young monks were educated and prepared for missions there. In front of the church there is a large stone cross, transferred from a location near the Church of the Holy Trinity. The monastery library is very rich, especially in the old, rare editions and images.
