Church in Old City

We did not go in so not sure if if is open to visitors. There is another church nearby, St. Clara, that is beautiful and was open. Be sure to light a candle.

Located in the old town city center, it is very easy to drop into this church for a short visit which is all that one needs. Interesting architecture.

St Luke's is a 12th century church right inside Kotor old town. It is distinctive because of its 2 altars, for both Catholic and Orthodox pilgrims. Its altars are stunning though only a small portion of the old frescoes have remained. Nice to visit.

The small church of St. Luke dates from 1196 and has elements of Byzantine and Romanesque architecture. It is the only building in town that only suffered minor damage from the 1667 earthquake. Situated in the centre of the old town near the Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, I found this one of the most charming sights in the old... More

This is a very small church next to the town's cathedral. It may go unnoticed by many tourist because of the contrast of its location. The building is beautifully simple in the inside, the outside calls your attention, specially when you go around it. It was built in 1195.

Saint Lucas Church is easily recognizable in Kotor by its outer appearance. Sitting in the middle of a square, this small church looks ancient with its grey stone blocks, blotchy with black algae, and 3 small bells grouped together atop the entry way and over 2 narrow slits for windows. From the side of the church's exterior, I could see... More

This church is quite small and the outside is rather plain. However, the inside is quite impactful with worn pews, the tastefully decorated altars, the artifacts and art present a lovely package. In addition, it is quiet and provides a spot to rest or spend a moment in prayer. Entry is free. Don't miss it.

Thank sentellr
