St. Tryphon Cathedral, Kotor

#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Kotor
Ruin Architectural Building
The largest building in the city, St. Tryphon Cathedral showcases a classical Romanesque architectural style and holds a collection of priceless artifacts and art pieces. Built in the 12th century, this palace rests on Corinthian columns and pink stone pillars. Its bell towers were rebuilt in the Baroque style after an earthquake, and its rose windows illustrate Gothic-Renaissance motifs. Seek out the lavish interior frescoes from the 14th century, the bas-relief altar screen, and the Romanesque Gothic ciborium--the highlight of the interior decoration. Visit the reliquary chapel to see a 1288 wooden crucifix, and look for St. Tryphon's remains at the site.

  • I have an interest in old churches and was not disappointed by my visit here. you have to pay to go in, but it has some interesting artefacts and you can climb into the bell tower for a great view of ...  more »
  • People in it quite a lot, however, the people on the square in front of him, even more). Place interesting and even historic building has been preserved since the -12 century Byzantium. Currently, the Catholic Church, which does not affect the number of tourists that eager to get into it, it's still a symbol of Kotor!)

  • Small Cathedral where you can visit his treasure and the relics of s. Trifon. I do stress upon the Catholic because close in another small square you can visit two Orthodox churches.

  • I love the two towers. Looks great in the sun, with the mountains behind! Beautiful. Inside is less impressive.
  • We went first thing in the morning and the crowds weren't bad. Be sure to go up the stairs to the left by the entrance to see great art and artifacts. That area could be easy to overlook if you aren't paying attention. If you want to know the names, dates and history, you need to purchase the guidebook.
  • impressive, should have gone on the terrace
  • Great Church, make sure you enter and go on the terrace to enjoy the view
  • Beautiful restored cathedral
