St. Tryphon Cathedral, Kotor

(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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 went to Kotor convinced by children. Indeed the town gem. Getting a fairytale and wonder. The atmosphere of magic. Beautiful location, picturesque streets view from the Hill eerie.

  • The narrow streets of the city, playing a different look to the city, but the square in front of the Cathedral to enjoy authentic pizza was really good.

  • As a licensed tourist guide I do visit this place more often than other people. However it never stopped fascinating me. No matter if I come to Kotor with the group, with my friends or just by myself,...  more »

  • 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.
  • Fascinating cathedral, somewhat small, with a definite Byzantine flavour. The cathedral square is practically the centre of Kotor Old Town and definitely worth loitering in.
  • The magnificent Cathedral of St Tryphon, was first built in 1166 but rebuilt and extended over time, after having suffered damages because of several earthquakes. The terrace on the church façade is a great place to view the square from above.
  • Not bad but in Kotor is a lot better "buildings"
  • Great Church, make sure you enter and go on the terrace to enjoy the view
