The same ticket that gets you into the Meštrović Gallery gets you into the little stone chapel, Meštrović’s Crikvine-Kaštilac, about half a kilometer further on. Here, on a very quiet spot overlooking the Adriatic, the church displays 28 wood reliefs of the Life of Christ,...More

We came for the evening Sunday mass and the place was packed with local. In spite of the mass was conducted in native language but it is familiar with our mass service in Thailand.

Meštrović bought little monastery with cloisters (16. century) for his peaceful refuge. It is placed on the southern part of Marjan peninsula in Split, high above the seaside. Stone buildings have similar plan as antique Roman villas and they are placed on terrace between olive...More

Don't miss it if you bought the main house entrance ticket, as it's included! Stunning. Worth the 200m walk to the old cloister. His crucifix is ... well, see for yourself! The olive groves make for a great entrance way.

This was the location for a family wedding and was immaculate. Great people and a wonderful location. You walk down through the olive trees to a delightful small cloistered area with great wood carvings and an outside space. Just wonderful.
