In XVII century it was just an abandoned castle. Thanks to the monks it turned into flourishing cloister.

Firstly Pauline ruled here, then Dominicans took over. The building is painted in vivid colours and eye-catching ornaments. Once a structure of four wings and towers (in the corners), it’s now left just with two. Therefore its shape is strangely irregular.

I walked slowly along the outer arcades not disturbed by too many visitors. The red flowers nicely contrasted with the grey walls. Perfect place to rest and contemplate a bit.

If you plan a day in Terme Olimje, I strongly recommend a 2-hours visit in this silent corner.
