Next to St. Francis Church is a Franciscan monastery with a gracefully designed atrium, the Cloister, which represents one of the best cloister atrium designs in the Istrian coastal region. Leading to the Cloister is a half-arched portal adorned with richly carved columns, bearing an architrave with an inscription and coats of arms. In its entirety and detail, the portal is considered to be the best example of stone carving art from the end of the 17th century in Piran. Due to its beautiful atmosphere and good acoustics, the Cloister has for many decades been the setting for the Musical Evenings of Piran.
Events: Concerts of chamber music, classical concerts, exhibitions, partly open
