A Franciscan Monastery In Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of those towns which rises beyond its reputation. Even when drowning under a sea of summer tourists, when cruise boats arrive by the score and unload their passengers, there is so much to do, and places to escape the crowds. Aside from the beauty of the Adriatic lapping at her feet, and the wealth of museums and sights within the town (not to mention cafes and restaurants), side streets stretch off in all directions, begging to be explored. There are hidden nooks at every turn, lined with ancient houses and walls of crumbling stone.
