Benedictine nuns

“In the world, but not of the world” , are words that could be used to describe this monastic community and its life direction. Based on evangelical values, driven by love for God and man and guided by “own” rules, in the midst of the city and its life, the community has survived for almost a millennium. The mentioned “own” rule, in fact, is the “Rule” of St. Benedict, which he, the father of Western monasticism, wrote for his sons and daughters, in order to realize his monastic ideal pray and work .


Benedictine Monastery of St Nicholas

Female Benedictine monastery of St. Nicholas was founded in 1064 thanks to St. Ivan of Trogir, so he celebrated 950 years of his uninterrupted existence on the day of his patron saint. Nikola (06 December 2014). The monastery is located along the walls in the southeastern part of Trogir. Today, only three Benedictine sisters live in it. Since it is impossible to see it from the inside due to the way of life and vows of this order, I gave the fifth for the knowledge of almost a thousand years of existence and for the bell tower which with its “lace” screens on the openings contributes to the mystery of the walls.
