Dominican Monastery

Dominican monastery in Bol was build on the peninsula Glavica in 15th century on the site of episcopal palace (Biskupija) mentioned in 1184 in Povaljska listina. On Glavica, there are many ruins that show early Christian architecture which is substratum of an early medieval architecture (Church of St. John and St. Theodor).

The greatest attention in the valuable monastery's gallery is drawn by the Tintoretto's altar painting Madona with Child and Saints as well as the paintings of the Croatian baroque painter Tripo Kokolja on the ceiling under the choir. The altars at the side, in the monastery church of Our Lady of Mercy, are among the most beautiful ones on the island, especially the altar of Our Lady of Rosary.
