Dominican monastery, Island of Šćedro

A unique and unforgettable sight is definitely the remains of the Dominican monastery from the 15th century. Once a year, more accurately the first Wednesday in July, the Holy mass is held in honor of Gospa od milosrđa (Our Lady of Mercy). This day is known among the population on Hvar as “Fiesta on Šćedro” where the joy of all the visitors to Šćedro is accompanied with Dalmatian foods, top quality wine and clapa singing that rings from every courtyard deep into the night.

During the tourist season a boat travels daily from Zavala to Šćedro.
