Kotor Walls

Kotor

From €8

High above the medieval town of Kotor in Montenegro is one of the best viewpoints over the Bay of Kotor – the city walls. The earliest Kotor city walls were built into these steep, rocky cliffs back in the 9th century to protect the town from invaders and were added to over the years by whoever ran the city at the time they finally formed a full loop in the 15th century. The walls are mixed in with an array of ramparts, gates, churches, forts and bastions too, and despite the onslaught of time, invasions and earthquakes they’re still remarkably well-preserved.
