Sublime view.

Fantastic views from the top of this bell tower. Be aware, at only 5ft3 even I had to bend pretty low to get through some of the smaller sections of the stairwell.

You pay about €1 to climb up to the top of this bell tower. Well worth it as the views are amazing. Lots of pigeon poo though.

This lovely old church is seen practically from every corner of the town of Perast. It's situated in the town's main square so you can't miss it. Interior and the exterior of this church are magnificent. It's mediterranean style and charm will definitely attract your attention.

We viewed Perast as our cruise sailed to Kotor. There was an excursion that went there we spent or time in Kotor and enjoyed it greatly.

About in the center of Perast, just a few steps away from the shore, there stands this big church. It dates back to the 17th century and is made of light-coloured stones. The interior is very simple. The church tower is conspicuous and can be seen from far away. Tt is 55m high. Although, I did not do it, it... More

An old church that is tucked off the main street. It is small and quaint with an interesting history. Make sure you look in the bell town next door. I think you can walk up but there was no way I was going up those steep winding steps.

Getting to the top is a bit dicey but worth the effort. Great views from the top. When they say watch your head they mean it.

Dominating the Perast main square, you can find St. Nicholas Church, built in 1616, replacing an earlier one. Such a big church for such a small place, and we count more churches & chapels; they are surely under protection...

Perast is the gem of the bay of Kotor, and only a 20 minute bus ride away. The church certainly adds to the old town's charm, but be aware that in this town really doesn't come alive until the height of summer. In spring, for instance, there are so few things open that you'll either fall straight into the peaceful... More

Perast is a lovely place to sit by the water and enjoy the fantastic mountain snow capped mountains in January. It's a small place to explore but, has lots of photo opportunities. The tower is the main attraction in the town and also Our Lady of the Rocks.
