Church of Our Lady of Remedy

Kotor, Montenegro

The Church of Our Lady of Remedy is perched on the slope of the St. John Mountain. It dates from 1518. The church can only be reached on foot: the rocks and the stairs that lead to the structures on the slope make this church a difficult and time-consuming place to reach. Nevertheless, many tourists and local citizens visit this church daily. It can be seen from a long distance.

The oldest known building in Montenegro, dating from the 6th century, based on archaeological evidence has been found under the Church of Our Lady of Remedy. An early Christian basilica, it is located close to the main city gate in the Old Town of Kotor.

Amazing viewpoint! 8 euro per person to get here, the church was closed, pitty! We came at 07:15 in the morning to avoid large crowds! Further up here is to the fortress!

We were able to pay the price of admission with a credit card. Was hot and humid here in august, so be prepared to sweat. Well maintained, old trail composed of placed rock and stone steps.

It is unacceptable that the road to the church has a price (8Euro). No meter how much.

The church itself is not really attractive. However, the view from here is nice. You can have bird-eye view of Kotor bay from here and along the hike. If you hike Ladder of Kotor, you will pass by this small church along the way. If you enter before 8am, its free. After that, its €8/tix.

We did the hike in the rain. The stone steps can be slippery but they were fairly safe. Took us about 20 minutes to get up to the church. The views from the church were amazing and whilst the church was closed when we visited, it was a nice calming place to be. I would recommend.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
