Perast and the Bay of Kotor
Perast’s name derives from the Illyrian Pirusta tribe. The small town commanded an important strategic position due to the safe harbors large enough to accommodate a mighty navy. The old town does not have a defensive wall, but instead it has nine defensive towers, the most important of which is the tower of the Holy Cross.
Across from Perast in the Bay of Kotor are two small islands: St. George and Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rock). Each of them has a picturesque chapel. The church of St. George was built in the 12th century and is still today an active Benedictine Monastery.
