The three wings of the monastery and the church enclose a square cloister, which was built at the same time as the church, but it was altered in 15th century. The columns of the cloister are of early Renaissance characteristics. A Romanesque chapel of St. John is in the middle of the east wing. For a time it was a private chapel of the famous patrician Castropola family. A collection of medieval stones, property of the Archaeological Museum of Istria, is on exibition in the cloister.

Address: Castropola
