A Roman Catholic cathedral renovated not too long ago, built on one of the cute little squares of Kotor old town. It was made by stone, perfectly fitting the architectural appearance of Kotor old town. This is one of the two Roman Catholic cathedrals in Montenegro.

This is well worth popping in. It costs about $2.50 but there are many Romanesque jewels inside like frescoes painted in the rounded arches.

One of the spots, I visited during my stay in Kotor, was this Roman Catholic Cathedral. It is pretty well saved and preserved, like, in fact, the Kotor Town itself. When we speak about Kotor, it is surely one of the most beautiful medieval fortified towns in the Mediterranean. The architecture design belongs to the Romanesque style. There is a... More

Although there is a small entry fee, its worth having a look inside the Cathedral. There is an interesting display upstairs, however the exhibits are not labeled so its hard to understand the significance of some of them.

Nothing spectacular but an overall pleasant experience at a fair price of both of the church and its religious artifacts. There is a nice rooftop view of the main square of the Old City. Worth waiting for the various guided tour groups to move along - they tend not to stay very long.

I do not agree with churches that charge admission fees that are out of line with any other local "attraction" and are exorbitant. That's how I feel here. I stayed outside and looked at the color books for sale and satisfied by curiosity. I have seen hundreds of churches and cathedrals all over the world and they do begin to... More

St Tryphon Cathedral is a must see when visiting Kotor. Its impressive façade leads through to an amazing 12th century Romanesque church with Corinthian columns and a gold and silver altar screen. The whole interior is so light and the 14th century frescos are beautiful- how it must have been when the interior was covered with these frescos and now... More

Just back from Kotor Montenegro and visited St Tryphon Cathedral. It is such a beautiful church in the Old Town. They were doing some work inside the church around the altar and though I've read reviews about going upstairs, that didn't look possible the day I visited. The vaulted ceiling is very beautiful as is the altar. Just don't pass... More

If you visit any church in Kotor's Old Town put this one at the top of the list. It was built in 1166 as a Romanesque basilica on the site of an earlier 9th C church. Inside are a number of interesting architectural features, and you can visit a treasury on an upper floor. Scenes from St Tryphon's life are... More

If you are in Dubrovnik, consider renting a car for the day and driving to Kotor. Montenegro is beautiful and charming, inexpensive, and loaded with great sights like St Tryphon. Tons of relics, beautiful old frescoes.
