Abstracts
The author analyses the features of the Lokrum gardens originating from the time when the island belonged to the Benedictine abbey, 1023-1798. According to fifteenth- and sixteenth-century descriptions, the monastery was engaged in the production of fruit, vegetables, and wine. The same sources also provide evidence on the existence of the “beautiful” gardens, that is, grounds particularly designed for repose and enjoyment. The author highlights the efforts made to cultivate and develop the green open space surrounding the monastery, as well as the construction and maintenance of the footpaths.
