The Garden

It is imperceptible to the eye, and unimaginable to the mind that such a small island could house a garden with such fruitful earth, hiding behind the monastery. The 6291 square metre garden holds an orchard, a vegetable garden, a flower garden, and grapevines. The explosion of colour of Bougainvillea, roses, lavender, and Hydrangeas, the smell of figs, peaches, apricots, and citrus fruits simply attracts one to spend all day in this heavenly garden with the light rustle of the breeze coming from the top of the Sveti Ilija Mountain offering a breath of fresh air in the summer’s heat.
