On the wall behind the main altar is a large painting depicting St. Mark Bartholomew and Jerome, the first translator of the Bible into Latin. There is also the icon Our Lady of the 14th century, which is believed to have saved Korčula from the Turks in 1571.

Tripadvisor Marc M: „My husband and I were very pleased having Ivo as our guide. He was pleasant and very informative about his beautiful country. Stopping for oysters, a visit to Ston, on our way to Korcula, a winery on the way back made it very pleasant breaking up the ride. Or highly recommend Ivo.“ Read more

Tours By Locals Kelly Zetler: „Our tour guide Ivo was truly wonderful and made our last day in Croatia our best! He went out of his way to customise our tour for us and took us off the beaten track to get away from the crowds which is just what we wanted. From freshly picked oysters to perfectly cooked mussels, to boutique winery visits...this was a truly wonderful day. The cherry on the top was visiting a Mlicini Ano, a little farm in the mountains where we ate freshly made cheese, homemade wine, honey, and the best lamb in Croatia!“ Read more
