Our Lady of the Rocks

Bay of Kotor
Perast , Montenegro

Our Lady of the Rock (Godpa od Škrpjela) is a man-made reef of sunken ships on which locals built a votive chapel and a blue-domed church to the Virgin Mary, all of which seems to float magically on the calm waters of the gulf. A keeper's lodge has been turned into a museum filled with touchingly grateful memorials to deliverance from perils at sea.
