Franciscan Monastery Church Portal

The Portal of Franciscan Monastery’s Church – Although the construction of the Monastery started in 1320 s, the beautiful south portal of the church was made much later, in 1498, by Ragusan sculptors brothers Leonard and Peter Petrović.

Sadly, in 1667, due to devastating earthquake, the the original church was completely destroyed and all what was left is this fantastic late Gothic portal and its Pieta which shows Virgin Mary holding her dead son Jesus on her knees. Amazingly beautiful.
