Dominican Monastery, Dubrovnik

Dominican Monastery, Dubrovnik (must see)

The Dominican Monastery of the area is very old, having been established in 1315. Much of the original financing came from the local government. In addition, many local builders volunteered their services to help the Dominican Order get established in Dubrovnik. Sadly, this building was also damaged in 1667 by the great earthquake, and had to be rebuilt in places.

It is a classic example of a Gothic cloister. There is also a working medieval well here, and a decent museum to visit. It has some great examples of local and regional religious art. The old bell tower here is worth seeing.

The stairway here has a balustrade which leads to the south entrance. You will notice the Romanesque style of architecture, which was done by a famous artist from Milan whose name was Bonino. There is a statue of St. Dominique here as well, depicting the founder of the Dominican Order. Also deserve mention are the newer Gothic arch and the statue of Christ here.

Opening hours: Everyday from 6 AM to 7 PM and until 9 PM on Wednesday and Thursday.
