Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks)
Gospa od Škrpjela is probably one of the most fascinating churches located at the same named island in the bay of Boka Kotorska, right across beautiful, small and quiet town Perast. The church was made in 1630 on an artificial island built by fishermen from Perast. The legend has it that after the shipwreck, these fishermen found an icon of Holy Mother of God on a sea rock and made a vow that they will build a church right there on that spot where the icon was found. And so they did. The final result is breathtaking. Make sure you visit this beautiful place dedicated to the Holy Mother of God, the protector of fishermen and sailors.
