The Cloister of the Franciscan Monastery in Dubrovnik
This magnificent 14th century creation of local sculptor Mihoje Brajkov consists of rows of elegant double-pillared columns encircling the Monastery’s inner courtyard.
My favourite time to visit the cloister is either early morning or later in the afternoon when light is soft and mellow and the cloister is not as crowded as during the day. At that time the cloister becomes kind of unexpected oasis of tranquillity in the very heart of the Town.
