Church of the Lady of Angels

Church of the Lady of Angels

Dragan J.
Is situated on the stone crag of the sea gorge Verige. Even though in the written documents, as the year of construction of the church the year 1585. is stated, the church probably existed even earlier. It is interesting that around the church a defense wall was built. It had a crenel, which was used as a fortification and a guard tower from which the passage through Verige was controlled. The Lady of Angels among people was often called Lady of Oriz, that is, Lady of Smiles, because according to a legend, on the faces of the sailors, who through Verige sailed in on their own territory a smile and pleasure would appear. #boka #church #crkva #crna_gora #kotor #kotorska #montenegro #or_lady_of_angels #perast #verige
