Additional information:

The construction of the Franciscan Monastery of St. Nicholas, which was inhabited only by "Conventuals" was started in 1288 and it was initiated by Queen Helen of Anjou, wife of the Serbian King Uros I. She also equipped the monastery with all the necessary church objects.
[...]
Within the Franciscan Monastery complex of St Nicholas there was also a small chapel with two rooms without a space for the altar or the apse.
Behind this chapel which was dedicated to St Mark according to tradition, there also used to be the monastery's monastery cloister which was completely ruined when the Ottomans built a gunpowder-magazine instead.
