Our Lady of the Rocks is one of the two islets off the coast of Perast in Bay of Kotor. It is an artificial island created by bulwark of rocks and by sinking old and seized ships loaded with rocks. The custom of throwing rocks into the sea is alive even nowadays.
The Church of Our Lady of the Rocks is the church built upon the island. The first known church was built on it in 1452 and it was Serbian Orthodox, while today's church, which is Roman Catholic, was built in 1632 and upgraded in 1722.

PerastVenice owned Perast between 1420 and 1797. The city's sixteen Baroque palaces were mostly built in this period, too, as were its seventeen Catholic churches and two Orthodox churches. The old city does not have a defensive wall, but instead it has nine defensive towers. These were built by the navy of the Venetian Republic in the 15th and 16th centuries. Perast was at its peak in the 18th century under the Venetian Republic, when it had as many as four active shipyards, a fleet of around one hundred ships, and 1,643 residents.
