Kotor Clock Tower Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
Built in 1602, the clock tower in the center of Kotor is the focal point of the town. Standing three stories tall with two clock faces, it is one of the first things people see as they enter the town through the main sea gate. Combining elements of both Baroque and Gothic architecture, the tower is made of gray stone and features a coat of arms on the front of the building that belonged to the family of a Montenegrin prince from the era when it was built. On the ground level is a watchmaker’s shop that is said to have been there since the 17th century. In front of the tower is a small pyramid shaped stone that served as a pillar of shame where local criminals were once tied as punishment.
The Kotor Clock Tower stands in Kotor’s historical center and is easily reached by foot from just about anywhere in town. It is a 10 minute walk from the main bus station and buses run regularly between Kotor and Budva, Herceg Novi, Podgorica and Bar. Most walking tours of Kotor will also stop by the Clock Tower.
