Kotor Fortifications

There have been fortifications at Kotor since the 4th century.

After falling to Venetian rule in 1420 the current format was set.

Clever use of a natural outcrop surrounding the town and mountain up to 260m with a wall of 4.5 km.

Yikes it says 1355 steps. On my way before 7 to avoid high twenties heat and paying 😁

Our lady of remedy is a Catholic church about a third of the way up, built in 1518.

You Kotor see this, wonderful views..

St John’s fortress at the top. Hard to believe all this has been penetrated several times.

Wooooh it’s a long way down. Guess a cable car would ruin the experience, maybe !!
