"Lapidary" (collection of stone monuments)

In 1970, Hvar's Cultural Heritage Center, headed by Mr. Niko Dubokovic, Ph.D., placed the "Lapidary" in the space surrounded by the church-fortress, bell tower and protective wall. The Lapidary contains about twenty stone monuments dating back to ancient and mediaeval times.

ZThe most significant ones are a tombstone dating back to Roman times, a relief made by Nikola Fiorentinac dating back to the XV ct., a Venetian Lion by the bell tower, a stone table that once belonged to a knight named Ivan Obradic and other monuments that are a testimony to the centuries-old history of Jelsa.
