Our trip starts in Kotor. After a twenty-minute ride, we will arrive to Our Lady of the Rocks, a manmade islet, where you can visit the church and the museum.
According to the legend, the islet was made over the centuries by local seamen after finding the icon of Madonna and the Child on the rock in the sea on July 22, 1452. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. It took 100 years to build the isle and 100 more to complete the church. Now, Our Lady of Rocks is protector of all seamen who come to Boka Bay.
Our next stop is Perast, an old town situated inclose proximity to the islet. This UNESCO World Heritage site, with its Baroque architecture, historic palazzos, Catholic churches, and defensive towers, will catapult your senses into ancient times of this place.
During our forty-minute stay, you will have the opportunity to explore this picturesque old town or enjoy a meal in one of the local restaurants.
After that, we will drive you back to Kotor.
