I think this is the Catholic cathedral and it is quite splendid inside while outside its towers and steeples point up to the top of the mountain behind. Well worth a short visit.

St Tryphon Cathedral is a must see if you do nothing else in the town. You can visit the museum in the upper levels of the church but you can't use flash photography. Some items are in an under lit area.

Lovely church in old town Kotor and we're pleased we took the time to wander inside. There are also a couple of other lovely old churches in old town Kotor, St Lukes and St Nikola, also worth visiting.

St Tryphon's which was built in 1166 is the largest and some might say to be the most beautiful cathedral in Kotor. It is located in a square in the Southern part of Old Kotor. The relics of St Tryphon rest in a chapel and...More
