St. Lawrence’s Church and Monastery Garden
The medieval Mediterranean monastery garden is an integral part of the monastery of St. Lawrence. It was renewed in November 2007 according to designs of architect Dragutin Kiš. The garden consists of a small well, cross paths, roses and boxwoods. Part of the garden abounds with spices and herbs (mostly thyme). Capers are planted in the walls hollows, and they are believed to have been brought to Šibenik by Juraj Dalmatinac. There is also the Our Lady of Lourdes Cave and the Church of St. Lawrence, which dates back to the 18th century. On the church facade, which ends with a gable, a profiled portal with a humble Baroque transom can be found. Placed in the tympanum of the lateral entrance is a small sculpture of St. Lawrence. Across from the church is the Franciscan monastery from the 17th century. Its main building is Foscolo’s Palace, the most beautiful example of housing architecture representing Šibenik from the 15th century.
