Badija Island pick up point
Badija is one of the biggest islands in Korcula archipelago , near Korcula Town, just 20 min away with water taxi boat.
It got its name by the monastery ( lat. abbatia ) built at the end of 15-th century. Today’s church is a renaissance art. Monastery had lots of repairs during the past, but in the end of 1909. was expanded. After World War II , Franciscans were expelled , and in 1950. the island was redecorated into sports and recreational center . Badija was returned to its true owner in 2003. , the Franciscan Province of st. Jerolim in with headquarters in Zadar.
Two years later, they gave the island to another Franciscan group for the next 99 years. Monastery and church , after more than 60 years of neglect, is being slowly rebuilt.
