Our Lady of the Rock (Perast, Montenegro)

Montenegro- Perast Our Lady of the Rock 1
1.21.2013- Our Lady of the Rock church in Montenegro sits on a manmade island off of the coast of Perast. The island was built by seamen and villagers after one saw a sign from the Virgin Mary on this location. Even today, once a year local villagers take their boats out around the island and toss rocks in around the island to shore it up. The church has some very interesting artifacts including an embroidery done by a woman throughout the course of her life using her own hair to do the angels’ hair.
