On a recent Mediterranean Cruise we stopped in Kotor Montenegro. Just outside town is the Lady of the Rocks Church. It is a man made island not far from shore that houses a beautiful and historic little church. There is an interesting story about a painting over the alter in this Catholic Church. It reappeared in the church after being lost or taken. Many seem to think a reverential blessing goes with those who come in contact with it. There is a small museum upstairs in the church that is very interesting as well. A needlepoint that a woman worked on for 25 years until she went blind. My favorite though was a picture of a cross that dates back to the third century AD. That makes it one of the oldest artifacts there. It is a nice place in a wonderful little town in a beautiful mountainous country. Well worth a visit if you ever get there.

A lovely little island a short boat journey from Perast, and worth going for some nice views around the pay as well as a look at the picturesque little church, but as many other reviewers have noted, you can see it all in 10 minutes or less, and sadly the place is overrun with boats and tour groups.

The Lady of the Rocks is a Catholic church that sits on a human-made island on the Bay of Kotor. The island was made by fishermen and sailors from the town of Perast. Go to visit the Lady of the Rocks and by all means take the tour - it is offered in English. You will hear the story of the two brothers who began building the island to honor the Virgin Mary with rocks and sunken boats filled with rocks. Each year on July 22 there is a festival when a procession of boats bring rocks to the island and drop them. The most facinating story is one of a woman from Perast while wating for her husband to return from the sea embroidered a tapestry of the Virgin Mary using her own hair, golden and silver threads. It took her 25 years to complete, She later became blind. The chapel has numerous offerings placed by sailors or their wifes for safe return. We visited Our Lady of the rocks from Perast cost about 6 eruros. We took a cab to Perast. However, if you're on a cruise you can also take a boat there from Kotor.

This is worth a trip but my advice is to go early as it gets very busy especially when the hoardes arrive from the ugly cruise ships
