Franciscan monastery

Recommended
This monastery occupies an idyllic site on a headland overlooking the sea. Built from 1465, only two monks still live here. Its museum boasts some fantastic works such as a fresco of the Last Supper (17C) and a rare Atlas by Ptolemy, printed in 1524. Take a stroll round the enchanting garden and admire the 400-year-old cypress trees. In the church don't miss the extravagant Baroque rood-screen, stone rood-screen in the lateral chapel (Crucifixion by Bassano from the early 17C) or the painting of the Stigmata of St Frances.
