Church and Monastery of St. Mary Magdalene
The monastery of St. Mary Magdalene in Porat was founded in 1480. It is likely that in the same place, under the direction of a nearby monastery at Glavotok, previously lived hermit monks. The present day monastery and church were built in the first half of the 16th century in the late Gothic style. The church was consecrated in 1557. At the site of the former tavern a monastery museum was opened. In the museum you can find various art and everyday items that were collected over the centuries in the church and the monastery. Today the monastery is inhabited by two monks.
