Overlooking the valley down below, St. Mary's Church cuts an imposing figure in its hillside location. The church's simple design dates back to the 15th century, with a landmark gray-white brick facade and single bell tower. Though its positioning makes it a bit tricky to get to, you can either travel by car or opt to follow the demanding hiking path. Either way yields spectacular scenery of the hill and valley. Plan your visit to St. Mary's Church and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tivat trip site.

  • The true ‘old Tivat’ - village of Gornja Lastva has kept its original looks. Most people of Tivat come from this village, or was abandoned during the second half of the 20th century because - its people moved to Tivat where most workplaces were. In the recent years, a few houses have been renovated as weekend houses. Old olive mill was preserved in the village and is next to the church.
  • Fantastic views down over the valley and into Tivat. Surrounded by a semi abandoned village well worth exploring!
