The Church of St. Lucas, Kotor

I visited Croatia and, very briefly, Montenegro, at the end of the summer, where there are a large and diverse number of religions and sects. As a result there were basilica’s, churches and lots of very small chapels, some only able to hold a handful of worshippers, scattered in both towns and cities as well as being found in more remote areas.

Whilst in Montenegro I came across the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Lucas, which can be found in the city of Kotor. Founded in 1195, the church has stood on the same site since. The interior walls are home to a number of medieval frescoes many of which have been damaged over the years. Restoration work is taking place but will be a long and laborious task.

The attached gallery of images will give you a flavour of what the church looks like and how small it is.
