Church of St Luke Tours

2 Reviews
The Church of St Luke in Kotor is one of the oldest churches in Montenegro. Originally built in 1195 as a Catholic church, the modest single nave building features both Romanesque and Byzantine architectural elements. Only fragments of the original 12th century frescoes remain today. The iconostasis dates to the 17th century and the floor is made of tomb panels as citizens of Kotor were buried underneath the church through the 19th century. The church is particularly unique due to the existence of Catholic and Orthodox altars standing side by side and from 1657 to 1812, services for both religions took place. Miraculously, the church was the only building in Kotor that did not suffer major damage during a 1979 earthquake.
