Franciscan Monastery Cloister in Dubrovnik, Croatia

No visit to Dubrovnik is complete without admiring the Franciscan Monastery Museum and especially the lower cloister from the 14th century. In order to fully appreciate the genius of its architect, Mihoje Brajkov of Bar, you must step into the inner courtyard. Above the ornate oval window is a row of decorative pilasters. Surrounding you are 120 columns. Look closely and you’ll notice each of the capitals in this colonnade has a different carving. This is a magnificent example of Renaissance and Gothic architecture.
