The exterior is nice to look at and get a couple of pictures. There’s one too many tourists around here and the church is apparently closed most of the time. So like us then, you probably won’t see the interior.

Beautiful church, now there is an art gallery inside of it. Also, In front of this church is one of the sites where the festival "Grad theater" takes place during the summer. Very peaceful and quiet place which makes the Old Town of Budva prettier.
