Sanctuary, Church and Monastery of St. John of Capistrano


The Franciscans in Ilok are first mentioned in the 14th century when Duke Ugrin built a church. In honor and glory of St. John of Capistrano, after his death, it was extended and restored by King Nikola. John of Capistrano was canonized in 1690, and the cell-chapel in which he was ill and died in 1456 has been preserved in its original condition. Today, pilgrims and the curious visit it and find in it the spiritual strength and faith that radiate from the entire church and monastery.
