Our Lady of the Rocks, Perast

4.5
Our Lady of the Rocks stands on the only artificial island in the Adriatic Sea, originally just a rock protruding from the water. Legend says that in 1452, two Venetian sailors found a painting of the Virgin Mary on the rock; from then on, the local seamen swore to build an island around the site and a church dedicated to the Virgin. The small church here dates back to 1632, housing 68 Baroque paintings from the 17th century. Visit a small museum at the site, and view exhibits on the history of Perast, art collections, and items from 3,500 BCE found in a cave nearby.

  • Beautiful place to visit!
  • What an amazing place!!!!
  • Definitely must see place on Adriatic coast. Very interesting, with amasing history and views....
  • Little island in front of Perast with a church. A view from the top with a drone is very nice (Simply do Search using 'Miki Sivan Montenegro')
  • Just off the shore of Perast is a beautiful church build to honor a painting of the Virgin Mary that was discovered on the rocks in the bay. This can be a busy tourist destination and is quickly overwhelmed with guests. There is a small gift shop with small food items and drinks for sale on the island.
