Located on the northern tip of the island, the Franciscan monastery of Our Lady of the Cave has been overlooking Lopud for centuries. The monastery’s origins date to the year 1483, which is engraved on its facade next to the entrance door, giving LOPUD 1483 its name. Creative Director Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza and her family have been sensitively restoring the property over the last 20 years. In order to preserve the historic origins of the building, they have been working closely with the Arhitektri studio from Zagreb to ensure that every aspect was carefully designed.
LOPUD 1483 offers a variety of locations and experiences that can be tailored to every taste, from the most intimate and private gatherings to high-profile events, as well as seminars, film festivals, concerts and, most importantly, weddings. The secluded atmosphere of the monastery, fortress, and garden provides a unique backdrop to any event. Meditate, debate, and relax, reconnect with nature in the secluded gardens, or unlock your creativity inspired by the masterful works of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary collection. For overnight stays, five unique bedrooms are available, decorated with stunning examples of contemporary artwork from their collection.
