These beautiful ruins are definitely worth a look whilst on the beautiful Island of Lokrum. They are currently under restoration & it looks like the work is being done well. Game of Thrones will love this place as filming for various parts took place here....More

The monastery is partially restored and worth seeing. Game of thrones section with iron throne is easy to find, though not purpose of trip (love the books, hate the show). Hap good lunch in restaurant. Now off to swim (after 30 minutes of course)

Lovely monastery currently under restoration in the gorgeous grounds of the old botanical gardens. There are lots of wildlife to see too. Including many peacocks, a variety of rabbits from fawn to black and lots of birds and lizards.
