The Basilica of St. Tryphon was begun in 1124 and finished in 1166. Romanesque in style with Byzantine elements, the cathedral was heavily damaged during several earthquakes and rebuilt. The basic plan of a nave and two side aisles survives. The main altar with its golden altarpiece is stunning. The art of the goldsmith work is a testament to the... More

Cost 5 Euros to get into St Typhoon Catholic Church. Church was built in 1166. Lots of silver items on display. There are several frescoes on display, but not well lite and hard to see. Probably not the highlight of our day in Kotor.

This is a Roman Catholic Cathedral, which was named after the patron of the town. It stands tall over this quaint and beautiful medievil town. There are many complex patterns adorning this Cathedral. We did not go into the Cathedral.

One cannot miss this church with its two towers. Several earthquakes damaged the church and this has resulted in much reconstruction. The interior, with its slender columns and pillars of pink stone, is lovely. The altar screen is noteworthy. The reliquary chapel houses some interesting artifacts and leads to a balcony overlooking the square.

This church is a treat because of its history, and also because it has some exquisite historical relics and church fixtures in a museum upstairs - memorable and worth a visit. They also allowed photos, which not all the churches in Kotor allowed. Arrive early, sit and soak up the serenity and spirituality, then visit the museum. This is a... More

This Church beside it's one of the icon of Kotor, it also has a small museum on the upper floor. The museum isn't that big tho

Kotor dates back to 186 B.C., but this Cathedral/Basilica is Kotor’s most impressive building, it was consecrated in the 12th century but reconstructed after several earthquakes. When the front of the building was destroyed in 1667, the baroque bell towers were added; the left one still unfinished. The cathedral’s interior is a fine example of Romanesque architecture with slender columns,... More

St Tryphon is a catholic cathedral in the heart of the old city of Kotor. It is an attractive church and, for a small fee, you can go up some steep stone steps to the sacred art museum above the church. The museum has a large number of religious artefacts. From the museum you can access a viewing point that... More

If Mass is going on, you will not be admitted. However, you may be able to go upstairs to see the reliquary, which is very interesting. Also, there are windows which allow you to look down into the cathedral. Once Mass is ended, the church is open to tourists

Well worth a look. Nice Cathedral and quite large for such a small city. Quite close to the large walls which can be claimed if you feel brave.
