Trogir - The Benedictine monastery of St. Nicholas

Published in Culture and sights

Near to the south walls of the Benedictine Monastery is located within the Church of St. Nicholas (once St. Duje). It was founded, according to the preserved charter regarding its establishment, in 1064 by the efforts of St. Ivan of Trogir. Since the monastery was founded, life within it has never diminished. It has been populated by nuns for almost a thousand years that over history have played an important role in their town and in the wider area - particularly in the field of spirituality and in the field of Christian culture and diligence. The numerous preserved works of art and books, especially the famous collection of "Vartal" Croatian literary texts written by Petar Lučić from the 16th century, are an important part of its cultural- historical heritage.
