The Cathedral of Saint Tryphon (Serbo-Croatian: Katedrala Svetog Tripuna/Катедрала Светог Трипуна) in Kotor is one of two Roman Catholic cathedrals in Montenegro. It is the seat of the Catholic Bishopric of Kotor which covers the entire gulf, currently led by Bishop Monsignor Ilija Janjić.
The oldest religious monument in KOtor ..it is.more then 950 years old, and still looks very nice ;)
Great place for game of thrones fan's to visit
I love the two towers. Looks great in the sun, with the mountains behind! Beautiful. Inside is less impressive.
Much better than Dubrovnik old town 😉
You have to pay to enter... but from outside is really nice
Kotor's most impressive building, this Catholic cathedral was consecrated in the 12th century but reconstructed after several earthquakes. When the entire frontage was destroyed in 1667, the baroque bell towers were added; the left one remains unfinished.
This impressive Catholic church dates back from the 12th century and it is probably the most striking building in the Kotor Bay area, not only for the history but for the fascinating frescos and other religious relics including gold and silver items.
Old cathedrals always fascinate me with its stones in which many centuries were pressed and even more human hopes and beliefs...
Was asked to leave because I was wearing shorts. It was really embarrassing... if you are a female wear long shorts to knees or pants.
Interesting church dedicated to Saint Tryphon whose severed head was brought to this town in a silver chest. You can see the chest in the cathedral but only the Pope can allow entry into the chamber. The facade has 2 towers with different height with different architecture mainly because they were built or reconstructed during different period and damaged by earthquake. The interior of the church is also unique mixture fresco (which is mainly used by orthodox) and framed painting (which is used by Catholics), demonstrating the peaceful coexistence between the 2 religion in this small town. The altar has a beautiful stone ornament depicting the life of St Tryphon, as well as a relief of saints in gold and silver
A combination of orthodox and cathartic church that shows the harmony of the two church at that time as they fight against Ottoman Empire. The second floor has many relics the church received from many sailors at that time. Worth visiting the second floor as there is one important relic of one saint that is locked in a nice case.
The view from the outside is all you need to see, it’s impressive against the mountain. The inside is nothing special comparing to other churchs in Europe. I feel the entrance fee is so commercialized the experience of entering a church. Save your euros and skip going inside.
Lovely looking church with twin towers.its a shame you can't go up the towers anymore . The inside was quaint with some interesting items
