Island of Our Lady of Mercy – The Adriatic is dotted with islands, and one of the smallest in the Bay of Tivat is home to one of the most beautiful Catholic churches on the coast, the Church of Our Lady of Mercy. The church was built in the 15th century and dedicated to the conception of The Virgin Mary.
