R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela, Perast

4.5
R.K.C. Gospa od Škrpjela stands on the only artificial island in the Adriatic Sea, originally just a rock protruding from the water. Legend says that in 1452, two Venetian sailors found a painting of the Virgin Mary on the rock; from then on, the local seamen swore to build an island around the site and a church dedicated to the Virgin. The small church here dates back to 1632, housing 68 Baroque paintings from the 17th century. Visit a small museum at the site, and view exhibits on the history of Perast, art collections, and items from 3,500 BCE found in a cave nearby. Put R.K.C.

  • This translates the name of the island. The Isle of Man-made, in the 15th century two sailors saw on the reef an icon that cured them, then the townspeople for two centuries brought stones, fired up old ships, and thus created the island.

  • It's a nice place to take a picture. You can see it from the coast outside, pay us a fee and come out on the island.
