St. Tryphon Cathedral, Kotor

4.3
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.

  • This church is situated in the old town have been preserved perfectly good as a building of architectural and everything is still in its original condition, complete lol. If you want to see the inner beauty of this church have to pay it. Can't go without significant resources. free of Montenegro is the main industry of steel, aluminum, bauxite agricultural products processing and tourism. Consumer products Major export products include machinery and transport equipment. Mineral fuels and lubricants, guys this country.

  • Kotor's most impressive building, this Catholic cathedral was consecrated in the 12th century but reconstructed after several earthquakes. When the entire frontage was destroyed in 1667, the baroque bell towers were added; the left one remains unfinished.
  • This impressive Catholic church dates back from the 12th century and it is probably the most striking building in the Kotor Bay area, not only for the history but for the fascinating frescos and other religious relics including gold and silver items.
  • The oldest religious monument in KOtor ..it is.more then 950 years old, and still looks very nice ;)
  • I love the two towers. Looks great in the sun, with the mountains behind! Beautiful. Inside is less impressive.
  • Great place for game of thrones fan's to visit
