Franciscan Friary in Koper

The Franciscan presence in Koper reaches as far back as the very beginnings of the Franciscan order (Ordo fratrum minorum – OFM). The first brothers came to Koper soon after the death of St Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Order.


St. Anna's church

The original church was completed and furnished by winter 1513, when also the altarpiece was painted by Cima da Conegliano and Vittore da Feltre and put up in the main altar. The church was much smaller than the present one.
