Piazza of the arms, Kotor

#19 of 104 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.

  • The square meets you after having entered the Sea Gate. The Town Clock stands there among the old buildings. Good to know that a rare public toilet is very close to the square.  more »
