‪Arguably the most beautiful place to visit in Ilok‬

‪St. John Capistrano (or Kapistrano) was a religious and military leader, who fought the ottoman Turks side-by-side with the Hungarian military leader Janos Hunyadi. He was a Franciscan friar of major influence and is credited with multiple healings in life. He was buried in Ilok, supposedly where the Sanctuary stands today. The Church and the Sanctuary inside, stand next to a Friary, which remains active today. The entire complex is on the land of the Ilok Castle, and historical castle of which only the main palace remains. This palace has been recently refurmished, reconstructed and today it houses the Ilok Historical and Archaelogical museum. The Museum is just a block or two from the church, so make time to visit both. The neo-Gothic church has lovely frescoes, both inside and outside, especially on the frontispice. Guided tours provide the best perspective of the historical significance of the complex. The view from the top of the belltower is spectacular.‬
