The architectural complex of Franciscans-Conventuals consists of the church and the monastery. They are placed at the marginal southeast part of the historical town nucleus.
The church was built in the second half of 14th century and represents a spacious one aisled Gothic building without architectonic decorative elements. The chapel of Saint Cross was added to the church during the intensive building activity in the town in 15th century.
The main entrance has simple stone frame of the Gothic form, while a Baroque stone monument, now without the human figure which was in the niche, was built in the second half of the 17th c.
Next to the church there is a monastery dating from the first half of 14th c. This monastery had an important role in the cultural and social life of the town, and especially in cultivating the Croatian language.
