Piazza of the arms, Kotor

4.5
#14 of 43 in Things to do in Kotor
Take a bit of a respite with coffee or ice cream at one of the many cafes on . If you enter through the Sea Gate on the west side of town, you'll pass a couple of cannons named after the nearby Venetian arsenal. The square also features a hotel that once served as a theater, the town hall, the Rector's Palace, and a 17th-century clock tower. Notice how the clock tower leans slightly, due to an earthquake. Pay attention to a small pyramid at its base, called the pyramid of shame--in the Middle Ages, this was the site of punishments and torture.

    Account with the Palace of the Prince, Napoleonic Theatre, guard tower and other palaces of the 17TH and 18th century. I would highlight the clock tower next to the pyramid column of shame, where criminals were exposed.

    This is the square you walk into when you enter Kotor using its main gate. There is nothing to interesting about it but it does seem to have some live music every now and again.  more »
