Church of St. Francis


Church of St. Francis in Shibenik is a Gothic building from the second half of the 14th century, located within the historic city center. On the outside it is simple, with a lunette above the main entrance in which the remains of 14th-century fresco paintings can be seen. Inside there is an organ from 1762, which is the work of the famous organ builder Petar Nakich. Next to the church is a Franciscan monastery with a rich art collection. The library of the monastery preserves more than 140 incunabula, among them the "Shibenik Prayer" from 1375 - one of the oldest Croatian linguistic monuments.

very good!!!
It was a wonderful experience walking through the monastery as we admired the rich art collections. The library was a quiet place to study and see the variety of preserved incunabula including the Shibenik Prayer. I was delighted by the delicious food served in a tidy beautiful hall. I loved how spacious the parking was making sure every visitor has a place to park their car. The atmosphere here is great too
We visited church of St Francis and had the chance to learn about the history of the church we loved the sculpture around the church and it was lovely to see.With the help of a guide we were able to take a tour around and we were amazed by the art collection. We also visitted the library at the monastery and the experience was unforgetable.I would recommend a visit to the place.
I loved the Gothic style of the church. On the outside there is a lunette above the main entrance in which fresco paintings can be seen. The decor inside is wonderful and art is well presented. I especially loved the the sight of the beautiful altar and amazing sculptures in the church. It is a paradise of its own.
This gothic church was built in the 14th century. It is quite old. From the entrance one can get a glimpse of the fresco paintings. I enjoyed visiting the nearby monastery. I had the opportunity to go through various religious moments. It was an epic experience.
Visited the lovely church with Romanesque and Gothic adornments and a bell at the top. It looks beautiful on the exterior and i enjoyed the tour and sight.
The windows of the church were so wonderfully done and cleaned, there was ample parking space and great atmosphere
