We loved walking around the quaint little town of Kotor. This cathedral is right in the middle of the town and such a lovely site.

Nice cathedral to view in the middle of city whilst on your meander round. A good photo opportunity but not much to really get involved in once here. Nice to check out on your way round.

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...More

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,...More
