One of the many churches in Old Kotor (this is the bigger one, maybe), one of the towers was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1979.

The cathedral if the old town of Kotor is really old, but is not the oldest church in town. You have to pay 2,5 euros as an entrance fee, for seeing the church inside, as well as a kind of museum with religious equipment. No information are provided. Recommened only for people that enjoy religious history.

The cathedral of St. Tryphon, the gooseherd patron saint of Kotor, dates from 1166 and was constructed on the site of a 9th century church. It retains many of the Romanesque elements of its original structure. However, after being badly damaged by the 1667 earthquake, new Baroque bell towers were built. The cathedral is believed to have had a Romanesque... More

This is a lovely old cathedral in a pretty setting, located in an medieval town, backed up by the looming cliffs of Kotor Bay. The interior looks ancient, with bits and pieces pulled from other ancient monuments. It has a serene atmosphere and feels like it has been there forever. I visited as part of an organized tour, so wasn't... More

I intensely object to being charged an entry fee to visit a church, no matter how special. I would rather choose to make a donation.

It's just another church to visit and definitely not worth paying EUR 2.50. The praised view from the balcony is the same perspective you get on the square. If you're interested in churches, the other ones in Kotor are free and as beautiful.

Kotor is at the end of the only fjord in southern Europe and is well worth a visit. Sadly our cruise sailed at night so we could not appreciate the scenery. Although having a somewhat gloomy exterior (stonework could do with a clean), the interior of this Cathedral is lovely and quite unlike northern European churches. It was built in... More
