Description

The Old Town of Kotor is well-sheltered from the open sea, situated at the end of the Kotor Bay, encased by formidable mountains – Mt. Lovćen and Vrmac hill. Strategically, it has proven to be an ideal position for safety in times of war, exemplified by the relative security the town has enjoyed given the turbulent history of the region. The Walls of Kotor, built between the 9th and 19th centuries on St. John’s hill, secured Kotor from enemies for more than 1.000 years. To conquer the walls and fortress of the Kotor Old Town we follow the Old Path up the mountain. In the past, it was the main caravan road connecting Kotor with the rest of Montenegro. This spectacular serpentine road leads us to a small old village called Špiljari. This is where the only family remaining in the village lives. The perfect spot to get some rest and try some unique homemade products while enjoying breathtaking views! After the break, we’ll explore the remains of old houses and the abandoned church of St. John. For those courageous enough, you can experience the nearby cave path that exits on a cliff outside the city walls. Finally, we will leave the ruins and proceed through a concealed passage to enter the fortress of San Giovanni at a 260-meter elevation above the sea. On the return, we descend 1.350 stairs, enjoy the spectacular landscape, 14th century Church of Our Lady of Remedy, and take (plenty of) opportunities for memorable photos.
