Lady of the rocks

Inside the church, there’s a small naval museum with nearly 70 paintings of sea views, old marine instruments and 18th-century weapons. The church also displays a famous tapestry that was made by local artist Jacinta Kunić-Mijović. It took her 25 years to complete the masterpiece, all while waiting for her love to come home from a journey at sea. She wove gold and silver thread as well as her own hair into the tapestry, which measures 700 square cm and is one of the most detailed in the world. One of the best ways to get there is to take a scenic speed boat ride by water taxi from Kotor which will give you some stunning views of the bay along the way.
