Meet Hercegovina

The ancient history of the area of today's city Ljubuški is marked by wars between the Illyrians and Romans, until the latter finally won at the beginning of the first century. Many material remains and ruins testify of Roman rule in the municipality of Ljubuški, especially when it comes to a large number of tombstones and architectural buildings.

The first Franciscans came to Ljubuški during Kotromanić’s reign and founded a monastery in the 15th century. The foundation stone for the new monastery was blessed by the Apostolic Vicar Anđeo Kraljević in April, 4th 1867.

The collection of artwork with its permanent exhibition called "Mother" was opened on the Mother's Day, in May 8th, 2004 in the Gallery of monastery in Humac in Ljubuški. The idea of establishing the collection comes from two Franciscan priests – Fr Ljudevit Rupčić and Fr Viktor Nuić.

The Humac Museum is the oldest museum in Bosnia and Herzegovina, established in 1884 and located near Franciscan Monastery on Humac in Ljubuški. The monastery was built in 1869.
