What you can Expect

You'll start by cruising over to Our Lady of the Rocks, an man-made island that's been built up by locals over 500 years. 

According to legend, the island was created after two local brothers found an icon of the Madonna washed up on a rock. Ever since then locals from Perast, have been throwing rocks in to create the island - even today, there's a festival every year called Fasinada, where locals throw rocks into the sea around the island.

Our Lady of the Rocks is a Roman Catholic church with a fascinating little museum attached. You can take a guided tour of the church and museum for just €1 per person.
