Hystory of

VILLA GABRIELA

Dominican Monastery of St. Nikola in Korcula dates back to 1498. In the garden, located on the west side of the monastery and refined olive groves, in 1656, a commercial building was built on two floors. The upper part was soon converted into a guest of the so-called. “Frušturica” for the accommodation of pilgrims and travelers of the governor. The lower part of the building, located on the shore of the sea, is an arcade-shaped room, “Arsenal” through which a wide porthole pulled the boat from the “mandrake”, ie the harbor that used to sail the monastery bays. Frušturica and arsenal today form a harmoniously designed Villa Gabriela.

Impeccable, carefully decorated accommodation with luxurious amenities and services.
