The Franciscan Monastery of the Third Order

The Venetian government awarded the church to the Franciscan Friars of the Third Order. The church was repaired, and the monastery was expanded with the help of domicile people in the 16th century. Glagolitic Franciscans were living in the monastery and dedicated their time to transcribing religious books written in Glagolitic script, when not praying or working on the land. The monastery consists of a cloister and a well in the center, which dates to the 17th century. Located within the Franciscan Convent of St Mary Magdalene is a museum that guards a collection of church artworks and archaeological exhibits from the surrounding area.
