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.

The church of st francis is a great tourist attraction and we had a lot of fun at the place. We climbed to the roof, which gave us an amazing view of the city, and then toured all around the church. While the building was nice, the history behind it was even better. The artwork throughout was different than anything we have ever seen before and we really enjoyed seeing it. If you are in the mood for something different this is a place you want to visit!
