Wonderful story.

I did the tour of the church and museum so got the full, wonderful story. My guide was obviously dedicated to the church and gave a very interesting and moving tour.

In the area of this bay, you must visit this special place. The man-made Island has a very nice story (ask a guide to tell it, it does not take too long). Enjoy the amazing view and Visit the Church! It was wonderfull!

Absolutely stunning island where you can visit the church and the little museum behind it. The guide was very helpful (especially given the fact that you only pay 1€). Very romantic atmosphere and proposed to my girlfriend there (by the well) as recommended by local people. Hope to be back there soon!

This is a very old church with a very interesting history of why it was built here. You should take the tour of the church and museum. For 1e it is worth getting the history.

Visited here whilst on a cruise. Had a private Taxi with 8 other people. Boat across to Island costs €4. Only need to about half hour here. It is pretty and interesting. Worthwhile visiting as it is in such a lovely setting but obviously is also very popular.

This small church was built on a manmade island that was built to honor Mary. Inside there are many offerings from seafarers that believe that they have been saved from dying in the sea due to Mary's intervention. It is small but includes a lot of historical artifacts.

We came to visit on an organised tour of Montenegro It's a quaint little place to come and visit but it's very busy and can be stifling inside due the numbers of people on tours Worth a visit if your on a tour but I don't think I would make a specific journey otherwise

Visited Our Lady of the Rocks on a day trip from Croatia. Lovely place to visit and nice to have a boat ride. The history of the island and the church is very interesting and some lovely traditions still maintained there. Not a long trip and busy with different tour groups but some beautiful artwork and also views of Montenegro... More

The local story about this island is very interesting. The paintings and the interiors of the church also unique. It has a museum behind the altar.

As part of a small tour group, we stopped in Perast and rode a boat for five minutes to check out Our Lady of the Rocks. The most interesting part about this attraction is the story behind it. Legend has it that a couple of fisherman saw an apparition of the Madonna and Child on a rock jutting from the... More
