Lopud 1483: Out of the Ruins

Overlooking the hypnotic depths of the Adriatic, the remnants of an ancient time speak to an ancient place. This is Lopud 1483, a 15th-century Franciscan monastery complex, with its church, Our Lady of the Cave, so named for the fact that the friary was built over a sea cave that was later transformed into an underground passage connecting it with the open ocean.
