The monastery of Third Order Franciscans, the so called Glagolitic priests, was located in the village Glavotok, isolated by the sea. In the 15th century, the Krk princes had their estate there, along with a small chapel that was located at the site of today’s sacristy in the church. After a series of intrigues and turmoil between the Krk princes and the Venetian administration, the area was finally handed over to the Franciscans in the final decades of the 15th century. That is when the monastery was founded, and the construction of a beautiful church started at the beginning of the 16th century. This is a single-nave church of Renaissance and late Baroque stylistic features. The main altar allegedly originates from the Benedictine abbey of St Nicholas in Omišalj. It is assumed that the author of the three paintings from the altar was Girolamo da Santacroce. The Virgin Mary with the child is shown centrally, while the two side paintings show St Francis and St Bonaventura. Even today the Franciscan order preserves its tradition with care and operates in the monastery on Glavotok.
