You will get to see the Lady of the Rocks which has a legend. According to local legend, two brothers returned to Perast after a dangerous voyage on the 22nd July 1452, one of them had an injured leg. As they passed St George, the 12th-century monastery built on the natural island when they saw something on the rocky outcrop.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough rock to build a church on at the time, so they had started to drop rocks and scuttle old boats around the spot until there was an island to build a church on. Eventually, other sailors began to drop rocks on the spot as they headed out to sea in hope of being protected while away. By 1484, 32 years after the icon was found, there was an island with a chapel on it.”
Another step on the way is the Sveti Stefan. Sveti Stefan, once a fortified village dating back to the 15th century. Today, the island’s cluster of sturdy stone buildings together with Villa Miločer, a graceful stone manse on the mainland across the bay.
