Photographer's Note

Our Lady of the Rocks Church was built in 1630 on an artificially made island off the shore of Perast in the Bay of Boka Kotorska. According to the legend, the fishermen of Perast found a wonderworking icon of the Virgin with Child on the rock – the one which now occupies the main alter of the church. They vowed to build a church on that same place dedicated to the icon of the Virgin, protector of sailors and fishermen.
