Worth a visit, mainly for the paintings Nov 20, 2011
Located in the Old Town area of Dubrovnik, the Dominican Monastery Museum is another monastery that worth a look if time permits, and if you can find it. Located near the harbor, you will need a good map of the city to find it, as it seems to be more hidden away.

Completed in the 14th century, this one was built more like a fortress, as security was a constant worry during those times. This one has a cloister and courtyard, both of which, are nice to look at.

There is a church, with some stained glass art and a crucifix that dates back to the 14th century. And a room full of paintings, some from Croatian artists and others from Renaissance artists.

Still, the artwork is enough reason to check this place out, as they are nice to look at. Definitely worth visiting, if time permits. But not enough of a must-see, that you have to go out-of-the way to see it.

Doesn't seem to be as popular as the Franciscan monestarry, but well worth a look

On entering you find yourself in a courtyard with some lovely cloisters. To the left there is the Dominican Museum, with some religious srtefacts and bling. There is a chair in there as well, the significance of which escapes me again.

There is another room beside this, and it has some painting hanging and some tombs in the floor.

You can then go and wander around inside the church, which is nice, and it has a lovely round stain glass window in it, which unfortunately the sun was shining through to make photos not turn out
