#1 of 15 in Things to do in Perast
R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela 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. A visit to R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Perast tour planner to plot your vacation.

    We have the two islands several times already from the shore of the Bay of Kotor. This year we came up with a small boat throughout the entire Bay and have the small church. Entrance €1. Within the Church is very beautiful with and beautiful ceiling. Direction output there is a museum with beautiful works of art of the region and use old equipment.
