Desa, the Duke of Duklja, donated the island of Mljet, in 1151. to be exclusive property of Benedictines from Monte Casino, Pulia. Benedictines have built, in end part of 12thcentury, the Romanesque monastery and church of St. Mary on the islet of St. Mary. The monastery was redecorated and some new Renaissance parts were built in 15thand 16thcentury. The complex looked like a Renaissance villa and had a Renaissance garden. A tower and the wall around the monastery and the garden was built in 17thcentury.
This paper present possible renovation and decoration of Renaissance garden inside the monastery complex. Historical literature clearly shows us that ground plan of the garden has been shaped as two quadrates, bounded with grape wine and planted with fruit trees. The gravestone found in the garden is a memorial to the builders of the monastery, because they had legal right to be buried in the building. It is a known fact that at the end of 14thcentury, the monastery was used as a quarantine, the first one in Croatia. From this fact, we also know that friars were some kind of pharmacists.
The entire islet of St. Mary was olive grove in the past, as evidence we still have about hundred olive trees. During the time, it became a nice promenade for visitors, with maintaining olive grove and paths we get a nice place for long walks for both visitors and native population.
