Monastery and Church of St. Mary of Mercy, Danče

Situated just 200m from the Old Town but away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this votive church, also known as Crkva sv. Marije na Dančama, is famous for housing two Gothic and Renaissance altarpiece works by Croatian masters Lovro Dobričević and Nikola Božidarević. The monastery is known for centuries-old tradition of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception greeting sailors who were embarking on the grand voyages and wishing them a peaceful sea and a safe return to their hometown by ringing of church bells.
