The Town Walls

The Old Town Budva is a unique architectural and urban unity surrounded by mediaeval walls, dating back to the 9th century. One wall of a Benedictine monastery built in 840 AD (now the Church of Santa Maria in Punta) was built as a protection from the sea. According to the oldest known drawing of old Budva from the 16th century, the town was surrounded by its wall and six towers, including two tall and one round tower. These town walls and the towers were destroyed in the great earthquake of 1667, while the new walls were built on the foundations of the old ones.

The Old Town is the heart of Budva, holding the main historical monuments and sights. Almost all the buildings have shops and restaurants on the ground floor that is why the Old town is not only a place of historical value, but a place for long walks and promenades.
