In Korčula Town on the lovely Croatian Island of Korčula, not far from the Old Town at the very end of Put Svetog Nikole (a west-side sea promenade) is the Dominican Church of St. Nicholas and its Monastery.
Constructed at the end of the 15th century (1490-1506) the monastery was looted and burned during the 1571 Turkish invasion, then reconstructed at the beginning of the 17th century.
Korčula is the alleged birthplace of the famed explorer Marco Polo.
