Tvrdos Monastery

Overview
Built on a foundations of the first Roman church, which are still visible, this 15th-century Serbian Orthodox monastery stands near the city of Trebinje, along the right side of the banks of the Trebisnjica River in Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

The monastery was, for two centuries, a seat of the Metropolitans of Herzegovina until the Venetian Empire destroyed it in 1694.

The building you see today was constructed in 1924.

Nowadays, the monastery is renowned for its wine production (in particular from the local Vranac and Žilavka grape varieties) and its wine cellars.
